  • Positive brand association: Engaging with Social Ark enables your organisation to prove its commitment to diversity, inclusion, and empowering disadvantaged communities.

  • Partnership Acknowledgments: Partner branding will appear on online and printed promotional material; this includes our website and social media. Social Ark will proudly promote the partnership across our networks.

  • Staff Engagement: Corporate volunteers have told us that directly mentoring disadvantaged young people, and supporting them to become social entrepreneurs, has taken them out of their comfort zone and helped them consider their own personal development. Examples include thinking more creatively around shared values, leadership, decision-making and negotiation. 

  • Innovative service solutions: The skills that employees learn through volunteering with Social Ark can be directly transferred into your business, providing creative, forward-thinking solutions. By introducing our core values and sharing our experiences, employees are empowered to consider their own privilege and how they can create a more respectful, diverse and inclusive workplace, resulting in higher levels of customer and employee satisfaction.
