Get Involved Corporate partnerships Corporate partnerships A partnership with ERIC is a unique opportunity to be associated with the only charity dedicated to the bowel and bladder health of all children and teenagers in the UK. We are small, but well respected as experts in the childhood continence world. There are lots of ways your business can get involved and support our work to make a difference to the lives of thousands of children and teenagers affected by bowel and bladder problems. Charity of the Year Making ERIC your 'Charity of the Year' shows your customers you’re committed to social responsibility and you want to help disadvantaged children and teenagers in the UK live better, fuller lives. We are delighted that B. Braun chose ERIC as one of their charities of the year during 2015-16. Here at B. Braun we are always trying to do what we can to improve the lives of individual patients, as well as make a positive impact in our local community. (Sarah Mannion, Product Manager) Gifts in-kind or pro bono support ERIC is a small charity running on a tight budget and we really value offers of help if you have expertise to share with us. For example, we're indebted to Chris Lewis, a Salesforce consultant, for the work he's done to help us use our customer relationship management system more effectively. Darren Whitehouse was so impressed with the support his family received from our helpline that he wanted to give something back in return. Darren’s employer Huthwaite International generously donated us a place on their acclaimed SPIN marketing and sales course for free. Payroll Giving Help your employees to support ERIC long-term by setting up a payroll giving scheme. Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax-free basis to the charities and good causes of their choice. Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 an employee gives will only cost them 80p, and for higher rate tax payers it will only cost 60p. Payroll Giving is easy to set up and low cost to run. Please visit www.payrollgiving.co.uk for further details. Sponsorship Through our work we reach a wide audience of children, teenagers, parents, carers and health, education and early years’ professionals. If your business wants to reach the same people, there are many opportunities to build partnerships with us. For example, you could sponsor attendance at a one-off event, fund the design and printing costs of an information leaflet, or develop joint projects and awareness-raising campaigns.
