Opportunity for corporates to make a real difference

One YMCA working across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire launches a model where corporate supporters can get involved to help change and save lives, working together to have an impact on the most vulnerable in their local community.

One YMCA’s Corporate Connect Club offers members five core levels of commitment, giving everyone and every organisation a chance to add value and support their environmental, social and governance/corporate social responsibility.

The Corporate Connect Club is a route to expanding your organisation’s impact far beyond the specifics and sector-leading delivery of your core sector. It’s your route to wear the badge of your organisation whilst helping vulnerable individuals to belong, contribute and thrive.

Guy Foxell, One YMCA chief executive said: “We are delighted to have just launched our Corporate Connect Club, which will give businesses, large and small, an easy route to changing and saving local lives.

Everyone is aware of just how difficult things are for some of the most vulnerable people in our communities, but it can be difficult to know how to get involved and to know your support is making a difference. That’s where our Corporate Connect Club comes in – offering five accessible levels of partnership that give every business a chance to get involved.”

One YMCA worked alongside leading corporate organisations to research and design this model, allowing companies to join at different levels and receive many benefits from their membership.

Foxell continues: “We’re hugely grateful to our inspirational Corporate Connect Club founders, Richard Behan, Rakesh Dua, Debbie Chadwick, William Poole-Wilson and David Hewitt, and I am really looking forward to meeting new members from around the business community.

It’s a safe and rewarding way for businesses to give back to their communities and see the very real impact of their support…all while boosting the critical interventions that our charity makes in the lives of more than a hundred thousand people each year across Herts, Beds and Bucks.”

One YMCA has been expanding their reach across Herts, Beds and Bucks to change and save even more lives and this model is going to support this growth even further. Any organisation is welcome to join and through networks and connections, make a bigger difference in their local community.
