Working in Partnership

A corporate partnership with Switch the Play Foundation can be an excellent way to help solve some of your biggest business challenges and reach your ESG goals whilst providing vital services to the athletes who need our support.

Unlike many other charities, Switch the Play Foundation is uniquely positioned to help with some of the most pressing business issues currently facing many organisations – such as recruiting and retaining top talent, developing high-performing teams, increasing diversity, equity and inclusion as well as reaching new customers.

Whether sponsoring one of our events, funding one of our services or delivering something new together, our expert team will work with you to develop the right partnership activities to meet your needs.

Career pathways

Our charitable purpose is to support athletes to transition to life beyond sport, and part of our offering is to provide Career Pathway support and advice to help athletes transition to a new career. We are experienced in partnering with organisations who are able to give insights and experiences into different business sectors for our beneficiaries. We can work with you to deliver an Experience Day or an Internship programme, giving you access to a unique talent pool whilst supporting our athletes to develop their pathway beyond sport.

Bespoke strategic partnerships

We can work with you to create a partnership that aligns your goals with our mission. We will discuss your needs and tailor our partnership to ensure it helps you achieve the business and brand results that matter for your customers and employees. A multi-layered partnership with us could include a range of activities such as employee skill sharing, joint research, project funding and events. Whatever your needs, our team will ensure that together we build a partnership that is not only dynamic and engaging but that is focussed on the objectives of everyone involved.  


We deliver a number of events each year from fundraising dinners and networking events to challenge and sporting events. There are a range of opportunities for organisations to get involved, whether through participating, entering a team and entertaining your clients or through sponsorship and speaking opportunities. Talk to our team for details of how your organisation can support our events.


Involve your employees

Creating a socially conscious organisation which supports a cause you collectively care about is proven to attract and retain good staff, boost morale and increase skills, confidence, wellbeing and productivity. We can work with you to engage your employees through volunteering opportunities, team fundraising ideas and by working with you on schemes such as Matched Funding and Payroll Giving.

Involve your customers

Depending on the type of product or service you provide to your customers, you can work with us to raise vital funds by adding a donation at the point of sale through a Cause Related Marketing initiative. This is an excellent way to boost your brand profile, generate positive publicity and increase your sales whilst supporting athletes who need our help.

Make us your chosen charity

Nominating Switch the Play Foundation as your chosen charity is an excellent way of uniting your workforce to work together for a good cause whilst demonstrating to your clients, customers and shareholders that you are socially responsible. We can help with fundraising ideas and provide promotional resources and more.
