You could support us by raising money through sponsorships or events. You could do a sponsored walk, bike ride, or take advantage of the Cumbrian Fells and do a sponsored hill climb. Alternatively you could host a coffee morning or bake sale.
We can help you to raise money by providing you with ideas for activities, and we can provide you with online support through JustGiving or you can download a sponsorship form below.

Whatever the size of your business/organisation, by fundraising or volunteering your time for West Cumbria Carers you can make a real difference to the lives of the carers we support. Whether you want to organise a staff quiz, cake sale, sponsored eventor run a marathon, we’ll be with you every step of the way.
We will come along and talk to your staff or members about our charity, what we do and what your support means to the people we support.
Choosing us as your corporate partner will enable you to work towards achieving your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) objectives. CSR aims to ensure that companies conduct their business in a way that is ethical. With competition on the high street fierce, make your business stand out from the crowd.
Another great way to support us is to choose us as your Charity of the Year, this means that not only will you be helping your local carers organisation raise vital funds, you will also be giving your staff something to work towards together as well as projecting a positive corporate image to staff, customers and business partners.
You will receive lots of positive PR, in print, web and social media from us and at the end of your fundraising year, we will arrange a presentation with your staff or members and feature your success as a story on our website and in our Newsletters.
We rely on local support to raise the majority of the funds needed each year to provide our vital service for local carers. To help us do this, we have a number of opportunities for corporate sponsorship of our events.
In exchange for funding all or part of the event, we can offer the opportunity for your organisation’s branding to be maximised throughout.
A package would be put together for each event but some typical examples for promotion are:
Some examples of events that could be sponsored are our annual Thank You events for fundraisers and volunteers or our Carers Week Activities.
By sponsoring one of our events, you allow all the money raised to be spent on service costs and respite activities for carers. Sponsorship could also benefit your organisation by increasing awareness and improving your company’s profile.
At West Cumbria Carers we have a number of projects to support carers which include Adult Carers Project, Young Carers Project, Volunteer Project and Benefit Clinics.
We have a wide range of activities within these projects which you could fund, such as:
