Corporate Partnerships

Eating disorders can affect anyone – your customers, staff, suppliers and their families – and so partnering with Beat can give you a competitive edge, demonstrating that your company really cares for its people.

Our partnerships are tailor-made for your company, enabling you to leverage your unique resources – your services, staff time, knowledge base and finances – to make a transformational difference to the lives of people with eating disorders.

How we can work with you

Our specialist Corporate Partnerships team will work with you to create the activities and investment opportunities that best suit your organisation. Some of the ways our corporate partners have joined our community include:

  • Sponsorship of special events and fundraising initiatives including conferences like Eating Disorder International Conference (EDIC) and Parliamentary launches, Eating Disorder Awareness Week (EDAW), Walk and Talk, pamper evenings.
  • Employee fundraising: your people can get involved with nationwide initiatives such as Eating Disorders Awareness Week, or work with our specialist Fundraising team to create something special for your company.
