What it means to become your charity of the year

If The Brain Charity is chosen as your charity of the year, we will work with you to identify and develop bespoke campaigns, projects and appeals which fit with your vision and values and our strategy.

Together, we will launch a unique calendar of engagement which will make a meaningful difference, leave a sustainable legacy and create business benefits on both sides.

We will provide a dedicated staff member who will be your account manager, providing all the support you need throughout the year. They will help manage each step of the process and come up with a plan which will work for your organisation.

You will be invited to come along to The Brain Charity’s events, visit our centre, meet some of the people we help and get involved.
