Make us your
Charity of the Year!
Charity of the Year Partnerships
Selecting Scottish Autism as your organisation's Charity of the Year will engage your employees in awareness raising and fundraising activities to help more autistic people in Scotland to live happy, healthy and fulfilling lives.
Our Charity of the Year partnerships support services, like our Advice Line, which has been described as a lifeline to autistic people, parents and carers, and our online support programme, Right Click, which has supported 7,200 people since it’s launch. Your team can also choose to support one of our current appeals and raise funds to provide facilities for our supported individuals, like sensory rooms, outdoor gyms and communication aids.
Partnering with us is a great opportunity to get your staff motivated and involved with an innovative charity, and a fantastic team of people, who love working with businesses to help reach more autistic people in Scotland.
What we offer you
- We will agree a fundraising target and a plan for the year, which will engage your employees and customers.
- Our experienced Advisors will provide on-site or online autism awareness sessions for your staff.
- Our team will help you to develop fundraising ideas, providing advice and fundraising materials. You will have a dedicated contact who will manage the partnership and meet your team regularly.
- We will offer a range of Get Active for Autism events where your staff can work towards a team challenge; from bungee jumps to trekking across the Sahara. There are also lots of other fun ways to raise funds - all your ideas are welcome!
- We will feature regular partnership updates in our monthly e-zine, quarterly fundraising e-zine, and on social media. Our Media Officer will also be available to collaborate with your team on joint PR opportunities.
We are delighted to have been selected by the wonderful team at Fraser Suites Glasgow as a Charity of the Year partner!
Laura Wood, our Trust and Corporate Fundraiser, met with Fraser Suites Glasgow’s General Manager, Ian Moffat-Kyle to launch this exciting new partnership.
During a stay at the comfortable serviced apartments in the city centre of Glasgow, guests will have the opportunity to donate to Scottish Autism. The team will also brave a charity challenge to Zipslide over the Clyde, raising funds to support enhancements to our West of Scotland services.
The Fraser Suites team generously supported 2023’s Scottish Autism Golf Day, and they are looking forward to developing new ideas to raise awareness and funds.
We were delighted to be The Law Society of Scotland’s charity partner for 2023/2024 who raised £3,606 on our behalf.
The team took part in a wide range of fundraising activities including running marathons, abseiling from the Forth Rail Bridge, bake sales and quiz nights.
Colleagues chose to support Scottish Autism after it was nominated by a colleague whose child had been diagnosed with autism.
Thank you very much to everyone involved in this wonderful partnership. The funds raised will support the development of vital services including our online support programme, Right Click, and Click and Connect, our online groups for the autistic community.
