Become a Corporate Partner

Research shows that taking part in the arts and creative activity promotes better mental health.  Research has shown that 65% of all work-related ill-health cases are due to stress, depression and anxiety, amounting to 17 million lost working days in 2021 – 2022. 

Our partnerships ensure that everyone involved; from your staff to the people we work with, can live better, live creatively and live well.  We recognise that all partnerships are different and we can develop a model that provides mutual benefit for both organisations.

This could be through team fundraising events, providing creative mental health sessions for your employees, collaborating on funding a particular area of our work such as our Young Peoples programmes, family art clubs or Men’s Music mental health project, or developing a specific creative exhibition that features work from your staff.

If you are looking for a local charity to partner with for a month or even a year, we’d love to chat about the reasons to choose Arc and the ways we can work together.

Trish Duggan, Cheadle Hulme High School
"Arc offered us a range of art activities to choose from and organised a day which exceeded our requirements and expectations. Not only did our trainee teachers have the opportunity to socialise in a calm and inspiring environment, they were given a practical demonstration of the importance of undertaking activities that allow us to switch off from workload pressures."
Beth Hodder, Wilmott Dixon, June 2022
“Mental fitness is as important as physical well-being to Willmott Dixon which is why we have chosen to partner with Stockport charity Arc. Momentum continues to build around the issue of mental health in the construction sector and working together…is a significant step forward in offering our workforce…the best possible chance at improved mental fitness through innovative and creative initiatives.”
Charlotte Floyd, Beacon Counselling, team away day, July 2022
“We absolutely loved it and really appreciate the time you took to prepare the sessions, it was amazing to be together as a team in a creative space and have time together that wasn’t focussed on service delivery. I felt connected to the team in a way that I hadn’t had since before the pandemic and feel it gave us an opportunity to have time together at the end of a difficult year.  I know that following on from the session the team were all really excited about how they could incorporate these new skills into their work.”
