Collaboration, Collaboration, Collaboration…!

Along with most charities and community organisations, we recognise that working together – building partnerships, communities, networks – delivers the positive changes we all wish to see in the world quicker and better.

We’re interested in partnering with organisations and individuals in many different ways:

Corporate Partners

We’d love to talk with businesses who want to do something good with their profits and time. You could sponsor the next KindaVillage, or fund us to deliver a project to benefit a cause that is close to your heart, or important to your team. We’ve got opportunities for business owners and employees to get involved in our venues and projects in many different ways: donate funds to sponsor a venue or project, give professional time to mentor our staff or start up enterprises, or provide our charity with pro bono services or goods. You could also chat with us about helping out with one of our projects on your staff volunteering days, or use our venues with hire rooms for your business meetings. Whilst we are really keen to find corporate partners willing to invest funds in our larger projects, every little interaction helps us build connected communities with caring businesses 🙂

Contact Us with your ideas…we’d love to chat!

Charities, Social Enterprises

Our venues are set up to serve their local communities, providing services to those in need and support and facilities to local people wanting to do good. We have many initiatives on the go at any one time and are always interested in discussing partner opportunities with other organisations wishing to use our facilities, short or long term, for their own purposes. Our KindaVillage venue in Wales, for example, is being developed specifically with partnering in mind and we’re looking for individuals and organisations wishing to find a base for their animal sanctuary/therapy, retreat experiences, forest school or elderly care projects. Take a look at what our venues could offer you in more detail and have a chat with us if you think you have an idea that will fit…

If you have a kind heart and a passion for helping people, planet or animals, then we’re often on the look out for volunteers at our venues. Take a look at our network Volunteer pages on the below links.

Alternatively, if you’d like to start something yourself but would like some support, have a look through the projects on our Kickstart Funding page to see if there are any that float your boat!

We’re passionate about supporting the passionate and, where funding allows, we support individuals with standalone projects of their own under our ‘Kindness Missions’ programme. If you think you have a viable start-up social enterprise idea or community project that does not appear on our Kickstart Funding project list, and you’d like us to consider offering some start up support, please get in touch
