Fundraising as a Company

Supporting Independent Options as a company has many mutual benefits. It provides the perfect opportunity to engage with staff in a common purpose, promoting positive team building and improving staff morale. A good event involving staff, friends, and family can generate fantastic positive PR for your company as well as raising much needed funds for Independent Options along the way.

By choosing Independent Options as your company’s charity of the year, you will be supporting a local charity to continue supporting people in your local area.

Jason's Story

Jason, a Shared Lives Service User: “Shared Lives is a place you can go to get help. You can make and meet new friends, and they have good carers. You get to go on holiday and share your life with someone else. My life is better because of Shared Lives because I have a home that is safe, calm and easy to live in. Shared Lives is helping me to be more independent and gain skills for the future. I am being helped to be a part of my community and I am supported when I am faced with challenges. Talking with my carer helps me to meet those challenges and it gives me confidence.”

Shared Lives Carer: “I have worked in care services for many years, but there is nothing more rewarding than welcoming someone into your own home, and sharing everything in your lives. The relationship that builds between you is something special. No amount of money could buy that.”
