Our corporate partners are not simply funders – our relationships are much broader than that. Partnering with ReachOut enables us to plan for the future. It means that we can feel confident in our goals to expand our work and reach more young people in more communities than we’ve ever been able to do before.
For our partners, it provides the opportunity to unite employees around one cause to make a powerful impact on their local community through volunteering, fundraising and skill sharing. We work with companies to create bespoke partnerships and we are incredibly grateful to all our supporters.
We’d like to say a huge thank you to our amazing corporate partners:

If you choose ReachOut as a charity partner, we’ll work together to make sure our partnership is an incredibly impactful one – both for your company and the young people we support.
Take a look at some of the ways many of our amazing corporate partners make a difference:
Funding from our corporate partners helps us plan for the future, ensuring we can continue to make an impact working with more young people in more communities across the country. Take a look below or get in touch to find out what impact your support could have.
Many of our corporate partners encourage their teams to volunteer as ReachOut mentors. This means giving two hours a week to mentor a young person who will benefit enormously from their support.
Another way corporate partners often choose to volunteer their time is by running Workplace Visits for the young people ReachOut supports.
Could your organisation fundraise for ReachOut? From taking part in our fundraising events throughout the year to raising money through a variety of different activities, it’s a great way to come together as a team and support your community.
Could members of your team become career mentors to one of our young volunteers or Project Leaders? This would mean giving 6-9 hours from January to September to help them unlock their potential.
ReachOut’s corporate partners have an enormous impact on the lives of young people in their community. The support of our partners means that we’re continuing to grow our provision with long-term plans for the future – reaching more young people than ever and helping them grow in character and confidence, sparking change in themselves and society.

“Hello, I’m Felicity, the Fundraising and Partnerships Manager at ReachOut. We are really lucky to be supported by some amazing companies who share our vision and mission of improving the lives of young people from disadvantaged communities. We work closely with our partners to build bespoke and mutually beneficial partnerships that include volunteering opportunities, fundraising, funding, events and more. Long-term, strategic support is hugely beneficial to a charity of our size, and I am always happy to hear from new companies who are interested in supporting our work, so if you’d like to find out more about partnering with us please do get in touch!”
“At first, I was really hesitant to take on the Project Leader role, despite having mentored with ReachOut. However, with the support of the team I’ve really developed my skills. For example, at the Mentee Graduation, I stood up in front of 200 people and presented an award which is something I would never ever have been able to have done before, and isn’t an opportunity I could gain in my other situations.”
Amy McCutcheon, Project Leader at ReachOut Academy, Dean Trust Ardwick, Manchester.
“Being able to spend the summer working at Rede Partners, was an amazing experience. Whether it was working in HR or Finance, I learned so much about the world of private equity, made great connections with fantastic people and I got to learn first-hand what it would be like to work there! I really believe that I can go onto build the career I want now I’ve been a part for a workplace for real”
Victor Adekunle, 18 years old, ReachOut Ambassador, London
“When I first my mentee, she was very reluctant to participate in the sessions. Now, I see a completely different person! Her confidence has grown and she is happy to join in! She still has some self-doubt when it comes to academic work, but that’s what I hope to help her overcome, because she is a very bright person!
Through mentoring, I’ve learnt I’m a lot more patient than I realised. There will be days where she refuses to participate and those are the days that I really see the importance of the character strengths, for both the mentees and the mentors. It also makes it easier for the mentee to understand the character strengths, when I use them myself”
Myrtle, ReachOut Club mentor at Tufnell Primary School, London
“There are more distractions than ever outside of school, and the commitment of our students to attend ReachOut sessions is testament to the value they place on the relationships they foster there, and the challenge and enjoyment they provide.
ReachOut’s focus on communication skills and character development has become an important aspect of our provision of support for these students. The opportunity to relate to a positive role- model other than their usual teachers is key to the programme’s impact, and the evidence of this has been seen in the students’ attendance, resilience and to their overall progress across all the subjects in the school.”
Thomas Janvrin, Assistant Vice Principal at the Petchey Academy London
