Employers

Make us your preferred Charity of the year

Make us your charity of the year or preferred charity. This could involve putting on fun events such as a non-uniform day or donating items or money towards a project. We will make sure that while staff are raising vital funds for us, they have a lot of fun in the process.

Through Corporate Responsibility and Sponsorship you can raise brand awareness as well as your reputation for being good employers and supportive of the mental wellbeing.

Inspire your employees

Team building projects are usually 1 full day and held at our studio where we can work large scale and not worry about making a mess!  Get a team of max. 20 colleagues together and we will get their hands dirty!

Reward your employees

Alternatively, we can offer 2-3hour relaxing creative ‘pamper yourself’ workshops at your premises.  Choose from a range of crafts to ceramics and sculpture to painting projects.  We will help your employees to enjoy learning new skills and accomplish a piece of work that will remind them of a wonderful afternoon spent in the company of their colleagues.

Supporting employees with mental health needs

Please contact us if some of your employees are struggling with mental stress that is impacting on their work and personal life.  We can work with individuals in a private and confidential setting to help them bridge difficult times.

Enlighten your employees

Much has been said about the need to talk about mental health but it is honestly not easy to start a conversation, let alone talk about your own mental health openly.  Our Mental Health Awareness workshops will help your team better understand the many variables that affect our well-being as well as through their empathy enabling them to reach out and support others in distress.

We need your expertise

We are always looking to appoint new Trustees to the Board and if your business can offer particular expertise in areas such as finance, legal, commissioning, IT, HR, sponsorship and fundraising we would like to hear from you!  Please email your CV to info@arty-folks.org.uk

Trustees are very important in our charity.  They enable Arty-Folks to thrive and our service users are dependent on them to make good decisions and lead well.  We need our trustees to have a wide range of skills to understand and address the many challenges we face and navigate the changing context in which we operate.  We need trustees who can challenge one another and the status quo, that bring different experiences, knowledge and ideas, but that are able to work constructively and enthusiastically as a team.

Support our members

Whether it’s mentoring our team of staff and volunteers or offering local employment, training or volunteering opportunities – We want to hear from you!  Business mentors have supported our service users to write strong CV’s and have supported them to apply for suitable jobs.  They have mentored them to better understand what employers are looking for at interviews and gave tips to win over anxiety.  In turn, your employees gain a deeper understanding of mental stress and ill health.

Tax Deductable Business Donations

We work closely with our business partners to decide where the money goes and we report back to you so you will see the incredible impact your donation has made to individuals.

If your company would like to support Arty-Folks, or would like more information on how we can support your employees, please get in touch at info@arty-folks.org.uk
