Welcome to The Centre for Adoption Support and Education

Be a business supporter

As a small local charity we benefit hugely from any support we receive from businesses in the South West who want to make a difference to the lives of our local families.

Achieve your corporate social responsibility objectives
We can work with you to develop a successful corporate-charity partnership to achieve your company’s objectives, forming the basis of a mutually beneficial relationship.

Adopt The Centre Adoption as your ‘Charity of the Year’
If your company chooses a local good cause as your Charity of the Year, please consider nominating The Centre. We are happy to help in any way we can to support your fundraising so that you can share in the pride of knowing you are helping us transform the lives of vulnerable children.

Employee engagement
By involving your employees in a partnership with The Centre, you can develop team-working skills, aid recruitment and retention.

Direct Project Support
You may like to support an individual project or donate to a particular aspect of our work e.g. post adoption support.

Employee fundraising
We will help you organise fundraising events that your employees are proud to take part in.

Event sponsorship
Opportunities exist to support The Centre events throughout the year.

Payroll giving
One of the most tax efficient ways of giving. A gift of £5 from a basic rate tax payer will only cost them £4. Many corporate partners generously choose to match their employees’ donations.

Volunteering
We welcome teams of staff who can volunteer to help with gardening or painting or by working more directly with us. Volunteering is great for team building and gaining insight into the projects your company supports.

Gifts in Kind
As well as items such as furniture, paint & computers, we welcome donations of venues for events.

Increasing awareness of The Centre’s work
We always need to find more adopters and a member of our team is happy to come and talk about our work.
To find out more about how your company can become a Business Supporter, contact our fundraising officer by calling 0117 955 8826.

Fundraise for us

Whether you organise something on your own or with friends or work colleagues, at school, church or in your local community, fundraising for The Centre is about enjoying yourself whilst raising funds to support our life changing work.

There are so many things you can do to raise funds for our work. Here are a few suggestions and we’d love to hear from you about other ideas you have:

Organise an event
Coffee mornings, cake sales, cheese and wine parties, picnics, Zumbathons are just a few ideas.

One of our supporters has raised over £6,000 by holding coffee mornings and Bring & Buy sales over the past 10 years!

Take part in a sponsored event

From athletic feats to equally gallant sponsored spells – the sky is the limit. We can provide assistance with organising your event, setting up an online fundraising page and providing resources, sponsorship forms etc.

Donations in lieu of gifts
Some of our supporters have asked family and friends to donate to The Centre in lieu of birthday and anniversary gifts. Gift aid forms are available to make the most of people’s generosity.

For any fundraising support, please contact our fundraising officer at 0117 955 8826.
