If you own or work for a company based in Oldham, the chances are that most of your colleagues live in the borough and are part of the very communities that the Action Oldham Fund supports.

Supporting Action Oldham Fund can

  • Help your business stand out from the crowd!
  • Build your company’s profile and increase your local visibility
  • Provide you with valuable PR opportunities

Your business can have an impact on a number of smaller charitable groups assisting a wide range of people throughout the borough.  Contact Clare Taylor Tel: 0161 339 2345; Email: clare.taylor@actiontogether.org.uk to see how your company can get involved and meet your corporate social responsibility aims.

Action Oldham Fund Partners Scheme

Make a donation as a business and become an Action Oldham Partner. Proudly display your contribution to local good causes with an official Partner plaque. We have a range of giving options including bronze, silver, gold or platinum supporter packages.

Nominate Action Oldham Fund as your businesses’ chosen charity 

One way to support local good causes is to organise a fundraising event – Action Oldham Fund can help you with ideas and fundraising materials. The event could be anything from a grand charity ball to a coffee morning. You might want to hold a raffle at an event for our charity or run a sweepstake for the Eurovision Song Contest or the Premier League. Your business will benefit from increased team spirit and staff motivation. Go that extra step by matching funds raised from their efforts!

Another way is to agree a donation per item just as Jack’s Smokehouse have done to successfully raise the profile of their brand.  Jack's Smokehouse signed up to contribute £1 to the Action Oldham Fund for every Smoked Rag Pudding ordered. 

Carl Taylor, Jacks Smokehouse Director, said: “I was born in Oldham and as well as being part of Oldham’s regeneration I wanted the business to be able to give something back to the community.  I have seen for myself some of the amazing work our smaller charitable organisations do right on our doorstep and we felt the Action Oldham Fund was the best way of getting our donations to a wide range of them.”

Donate Goods or Services

Would you like to offer professional skills, or goods to voluntary groups across the borough of Oldham? We can ensure your gifts reach community groups that would really benefit from the extra help.  Free websites, free leaflet printing, free logo design, human resources workshops are all examples of previous in - kind donations given by local companies to local charitable groups. 

Businesses donating goods/resources will be able to display our supporting Action Oldham Fund stamp.

Team Challenge

Develop your workforce and make an impact on the ground through a local team challenge. This is perfect for a one-off team building event  – a volunteering day focused on a one-off practical task. This might be improving a local facility – a playground, social centre or open spaces – or it could be supporting a particular event or activity.

These are a great way to build rapport, develop and uncover hidden skills, and get team working well together. Action Together plans the event, finds the right challenge for your business, and provides support on the day.  To find out more, contact sian.goodwin@actiontogether.org.uk.
