Donations make a huge difference to The Elm Foundation and the services we can provide to those experiencing Domestic Abuse. With your help we can secure and enhance the services we are able to offer. If you want to find out how you can help please contact us via email using our contact form or ring 01246 540464.

Give With Your Company

Domestic Abuse has a significant impact in all workplaces, for example; It is estimated that domestic violence costs UK businesses in excess of £2.7bn each year due to decreased productivity, poor performance, absenteeism and employee turnover. A recent Home Office report found that 20 per cent of victims of Domestic Abuse had to take a month or more off work in the previous year due to the abuse. Other research has found that 56 per cent of abused women arrive late for work at least five times a month and 53 percent miss at least three days of work a month.
We can help you to set up a Payroll Giving scheme so that your staff can donate directly from their salary before tax. Payroll Giving enables a basic rate tax payer to tax relief of £2 on every £10 donated, meaning that a £10 donation only actually costs them £8. If your company already has a Payroll Giving scheme in place, we can give a talk to your staff to encourage them to give to The Elm Foundation through the scheme.

Company Sponsorship

By sponsoring a project, your business will get the opportunity to promote your brand to key audiences and gain positive PR and press exposure at a local level. Launch events for the activity you are sponsoring will also give you the opportunity to network and promote your business to key clients and our network of supporters.
Sponsoring a project means that your company will have a greater level of involvement in work to support all those affected by Domestic Abuse, and can be involved in the shaping of the project, enabling your business to have a clear and measurable impact on our work.
