There are so many ways your company can support Percy Hedley

From choosing us as your Charity of The Year, as the benefitting charity of your monthly dress down day, or anything in between – you will play a key part in supporting disabled people here in the North East.

How To Get Involved As A Business

Charity of the Year

A charity of the year (COTY) partnership can have a long-lasting impact on your business as well as our charity. It’s an opportunity to unite your staff behind an inspiring cause and to demonstrate your company’s commitment to making a difference in your community.

The Percy Hedley Ball

The Percy Hedley Ball has established itself on the North East’s social calendar as one of the region’s premier charity events.

Register Your Own Event

Lovely businesses from across the North East are baking, walking, sitting in silence, head shaving, pub quiz-ing, singing, dancing, and everything in between to raise vital funds for Percy Hedley! Let us know your plans and we’ll do everything we can to help you make the most of your fundraising.


We have lots of volunteering opportunities you can get involved with.  We’d love to talk to you about ways your team could make a real difference for our students and residents, whether you help us make our gardens beautiful, decorate a classroom or help us plan future projects.
