All our Clubs and Societies are encouraged to find group sponsorship to help them to develop and grow their activities and we have some great examples of groups who have strong, long term and mutually beneficial relationships with companies and organisations both local and national.
If you're a Club or Society looking to gain sponsorship, please get in touch with your Development and Engagement Coordinator. Keep them up to date with your potential sponsorships, as they can offer you support and ensure you're getting the best deal for you and your members. Please send any sponsorship contracts to your Development and Engagement Coordinator before signing.
If you are interested in sponsoring a Club or Society, you can have a look at all our groups here and their contact details. If you have any general questions about sponsoring groups please contact us here.
