Corporate & Community Partners

What does a partnership with Oakleaf look like?

We always strive to form meaningful partnerships with corporate and community groups. Partnerships have the potential to deliver transformational benefits for a company, our charity and the local community. We tailor every partnership to cater to the organisation’s needs – whether that is greater community exposure, employee engagement or learning more about mental health.

There are many ways your organisation can get involved:

• Support Oakleaf as your charity of the year

• Employee fundraising

• Gifts in kind

• Take a Mental Health First Aid Training Course

• Collection tins

• Sponsor an event

• Volunteer days

• Matched giving

• Pro bono work

• Host your own event – both big and small!

Fundraising Materials

We are here to give you as much support with your fundraising as possible – from banners and leaflets to t-shirts and collection buckets. We want you to feel a part of the Oakleaf Team.

Social Media

We promote our partnerships and your fundraising events via our social media channels – from Facebook and Twitter to LinkedIn. Don’t forget that once the event is finished, we’d love to share some of your photos and videos of your fantastic fundraising efforts!

Oakleaf Visit

We can arrange for you and your colleagues to come and visit our Guildford HQ to learn more about how Oakleaf supports local individuals to manage their mental ill-health. This opportunity gives your fundraising greater significance as you can come and experience the work that you are supporting first-hand.

Mental Health Expertise

As part of our corporate partnerships, we are keen to come and speak with you and your employees about mental health awareness – offering tips and short talks on how to manage your stress & mental wellbeing.
