At AVUK, we work with a range of corporate partners across the UK – large and small. 

These relationships are vital to us, and every penny raised goes towards our work supporting more deaf babies and children learn to listen and speak and have the same opportunities as their hearing peers. Our aim is to raise £2million every year for the next 10 years, this will enable every family who wants their child to learn to listen and talk to be able to access an Auditory Verbal programme through publicly funded services in their local area.  

All corporate partnerships play a vital role in making this possible.

“Auditory Verbal UK are a charity we are privileged to partner with, and to support in making a real difference to lives of deaf babies and children. We have launched successful customer point of sale donation functions through many of our brands, done email marketing campaigns, donated our time and skills to AVUK and committed to taking part in Loud Shirt Day this October. Inspired by these activities and by the work AVUK does, our employees have also taken on their own active challenges such as running marathons and half-marathons to raise further funds. We look forward to seeing where our partnership takes us in the future!”
