Is there beauty in charity partnerships?


Steph Walker works at the Christian children’s charity Transforming Lives for Good. She recommends businesses consider partnership with a Christian charity, partly because it enhances the business’s reputation, but also often involves staff providing skills and experience to the charity, resulting in greater inclusion and engagement for staff and clients. The need is greater now because there has been a decline in charitable giving by businesses due to the lockdown, and she has found that in the UK (in contrast to USA) the mention of church or Christian results in a refusal to become involved due to clauses excluding religious charities.
