Statement on sponsorship by Board of Trustees

Statement on sponsorship by Board of Trustees 2017-05-31T12:24:41+00:00

Sponsors, potential sponsors and supporters

As a charity receiving no government funding, corporate sponsorship – both from the pharmaceutical industry and the wider business community – is a core component of our financial wellbeing. Commercial support enables us to maintain a viable level of service and to develop and expand our work. In 2017 we will need a total of £75,000 from corporate sources.

Sponsorship packages are tailored to match both the requirements of the sponsor and those of the charity to ensure mutually agreed objectives and outcomes.

Women’s Health Concern has a strict Advertising policy.

On behalf of the board of trustees and the medical advisory council, I emphasise our commitment to providing unbiased and independent services. This principle underpins all our work and sponsors must, of course, agree to this requirement.

Please do get in touch with me to discuss sponsorship options in more detail.

With best wishes
