Sponsorship:

Sponsorship gives your team the opportunity to fund a position in our flagship Pathway for Change hospitality employment and training program for a young person who is at-risk of or experiencing homelessness. The young people that we work with are ready to jump into the workplace and to build the future of their choosing, they just need a bit of a support to get them prepared. Sponsorship directly funds wages of the young person, training of our trainers to support them and additional resources to facilitate their journey. As a workplace, you will receive regular, tailored impact updates, annually be invited to attend one of our cafes for lunch and a presentation of our work and have mutual advertising opportunities for promoting the partnership. 

“AP Group began a partnership with For Change Co in 2023 to build on our shared vision of creating opportunity for at-risk young people.

Whilst we’re deeply passionate about the cause, we recognise we don’t have the right skills to make an impact. That’s where For Change Co come in. The partnership has helped embed a deeper purpose for our business, as well as inspire our team. Our team carries extra motivation in the knowledge that we are helping young people out of the homelessness cycle just by turning up for work – thanks to the great work done by For Change Co.

For Change Co have gone above and beyond to share insights on their program and the impact it is having on the ground. We’re looking forward to creating even greater impact in the years to come.”

–  Andy Whelan, General Manager AP Group

Fundraising:

Corporate fundraising provides a great way for your team to come together, work as a team, create a shared experience and to raise vital funds for our work! Corporate fundraising is an alternative option to corporate volunteering which delivers stronger returns to For Change Co. and the young people that we exist to support. As an organisation that has done a fair bit of fundraising in our time we are ready with ideas and tools to support your fundraising efforts, and we’ll of course have you along to one of our cafes to celebrate your success and share how your funds are being used to support young people. 

“As a corporate group helping the cause was incredibly rewarding but beyond that the charity hike also provided our team a great exercise in resilience and team building.

The morale of those involved in the campaign was so obviously elevated before, during and for a long time after the hike and is something we will aspire to do again.”

–  Ethan Sedgman, NAB Fundraising Team Organiser

“We hired Crêpes for Change for a corporate event. The crepes were amazing, the staff were a pleasure to deal with and it’s great to be able to have an opportunity to give back in this way. Love you guys – keep up the good work!”
