We are a small charity dedicated to Teesside, but we have a big profile, an extensive network of supporters and an excellent reputation – locally and nationally. Everyone knows that healthy businesses rely on attracting and retaining customers, but connecting with us will help you stand out from the crowd.
We are not just a way of promoting your brand; in partnership with us you will promote your values and commitment to local people, where they live and work, investing in their futures through our traineeships, volunteering and education programmes.
It can be a real challenge to get your messages heard by the audiences you need, to build collaborative relationships and demonstrate social responsibility, and all these things are becoming more important to succeed at any level.
Your business environment is part of our natural environment. Together we can better manage them and help them grow.

You and your employees can receive tax relief on any donations made to us (including membership) through payroll giving schemes, so they are worth more to both of us. We are currently setting a scheme up for 2017, so please ask us for more details if you are interested in being part of it.
We can provide advice and guidance on developments that may have ecological impact, including assistance with surveys.
We regularly run raffles, lotteries and competitions for everything from books to signed ‘Boro football shirts! For anyone interested in helping our education team with children’s activities there are even match tickets available every now and again!
Would your staff and customers be interested in the Three Peaks Challenge, wild camping or a skydive? We can organise these at discounted rates for groups or individuals who raise funds for us through sponsorship.
We have linked up with Cash for Coins who turn foreign and out of date currency into donations for charity. A drive for this in your company at the end of the Summer holiday period could support our volunteers and wildlife through the tougher times in Winter.
Give as You Live is a fantastic service where anyone can raise free donations for us at absolutely no cost to them, just by doing their regular shopping online!
We run a wide range of projects across Teesside which involve buying everything from tools and clothing to plants and food. If you are a member and can offer best value for what we need, we will purchase from you. Your goods could then be seen and used by thousands of people attending our events, school children and volunteers on all our nature reserves.
