Get your company involved

Our partnerships make a crucial difference to our work. And just as importantly, they meet the objectives and challenges that your business faces.


What better way to demonstrate your commitment to being a socially responsible company than by teaming up with Family Lives? Our vision of supporting families to transform children’s lives will strike a chord with all your staff and customers, and supporting us will help you engage with them, team-build and enhance brand loyalty. Our Business Development team is here to support you every step of the way to ensure that you can meet your business objectives, whether it be engaging with a key target audience of families, building staff morale or helping your staff deal with the challenges of family life.

Staff engagement

Family is important to everyone - supporting us provides a cause with which staff will easily identify. Providing ways for your staff to raise money for a good cause can be a huge morale booster - opportunities for staff engagement include:

  • Overseas challenges and running events – once in a lifetime trips and getting fit while fundraising for Family Lives offer fantastic team building opportunities
  • Family Lives Big Breakfast – bring families together at work to raise awareness of the support we offer and fundraise at the same time
  • Volunteering opportunities – on our helpline, as befriending volunteers, or Family Lives community champions. Find out more about how you can help. 
  • Payroll giving – a tax-efficient and sustainable way for employees to give. Find out more
  • Matched giving – motivate your staff by agreeing to match the funds they raise.

Corporate membership

Supporting your working families

Our programme of parenting and communication workshops, helpline, and online support services, are available to companies so that staff can gain access to bespoke family support in the workplace. We give families the tools they need to help themselves, so they can come to work feeling like they can cope with the pressures of managing their working life and bringing up a family. Employer-led family-friendly provision can directly impact upon performance, staff retention and the costs associated with absenteeism.

We can work with you on a tailor-made programme for your working mums, dads and carers so that they know you are supporting them as both an employee, and a family. Get in touch to find out more.

Sponsorship and cause-related marketing

Research has proven that a brand’s association with a charity positively affects consumer perception and can increase sales. As the leading national family support charity, a marketing campaign with us will provide a unique partnership, with universal appeal and real impact. Whether you are about to launch a new product, re-launch an existing one, or promote your brand, Family Lives can help you to connect with your audience.
