Corporate partnerships help us drive positive change in the level of care and experience available to patients in County Durham and Darlington.

By collaborating with businesses like yours, we can make a real difference in the lives of patients and their families regardless of whether out care is delivered by the NHS at one of our hospitals on site, in the community or at home. 

Here's why partnering with us is beneficial and how we tailor opportunities to meet your specific goals and interests as a business.

Benefits of corporate charity partnership

  • Community impact: Align your brand with a trusted healthcare charity and demonstrate your commitment to corporate social responsibility.
  • Brand exposure: Gain visibility within wider community through your activities and PR.
  • Employee engagement: Offer your employees meaningful local opportunities for volunteering, fundraising, and community involvement.
  • Networking opportunities: Connect with other like-minded businesses and organisations through our corporate events and networking.

Tailored partnership opportunities

We understand that every corporate partner is unique, with specific goals and interests. That's why we work closely with each partner to tailor partnership opportunities that align with their objectives. Whether it's sponsoring a fundraising event, collaborating on a specific appeal, or organising a corporate volunteer day, we'll work together to create a partnership that maximises impact and benefits both your business and our charity.
