Corporate Partnerships

Chickenshed relies on the generous support of corporate companies, there are many ways that your company can get involved and help Chickenshed impact more children and young people.  

We have been going for over 40 years, and we intend to still be here 40 years from now. But we can’t do this without corporate companies standing up and joining us.

Working with us in partnership to raise funds will enable children and young people the chance to discover their potential. Every year we have to fundraise just over 2 million pounds and currently receive 10% of that amount through our amazing corporate partners and sponsors. With your support, we want to help more than the 1,000 children and young people that we already reach each week.

We currently work with companies of all sizes and there are plenty of opportunities to help support our work in a number of capacities.

Gifts in Kind

Every year we are extremely fortunate to have fantastic support from companies who have provided us with pro bono support or gifts in kind. This support is invaluable, as we often do not have the expertise in house, which is needed for the day to day running of Chickenshed.

Charity of the Year Partnership

If you have a traditional COTY partnership, then we offer you unique opportunities to work with us throughout the year. Working with a smaller sized charity will mean that all your fundraising efforts are even more impactful on our work. Also, we will work with you to create a truly bespoke offering, with a dedicated account manager to ensure all of your staff are fully engaged.

Sponsorship of Events

Throughout the year we have a diverse events programme, ranging from high profile galas to more bespoke events, and in fun venues such as the London Film Museum. To make the most of these events, we look for either a headline sponsor or a few sponsors for various parts of the night. By sponsoring these events, you will not only increase your profile with our passionate supporters, but also directly support our work.


Every year we run three or four main production shows in our Rayne Theatre, to accompany the performance we print programmes with details of the show. We also produce booklets for events and Galas. Depending on the target audience you want to reach, the programmes or brochures are a great way of reaching new audiences.

Funding Projects and Programmes

In order to support our core work, projects and programmes are available to sponsor on a 3-yearly basis. These projects address issues around mental health, peer pressure, inequality, gang involvement and a lack of diversity in the arts and education sectors. 


Corporate Training

We also run unique corporate training for companies of all sizes. We use our in-house theatre and inclusive ethos to enable your staff to learn alongside our students and experienced practitioners. We have three core courses: Diversity and Inclusivity, Teamwork and Communication and Unconscious Bias, with many other bespoke courses available.
