Corporate partnerships

Sense partners with companies big and small all over the UK. Our partnerships help create more inclusive employers, by promoting accessibility for both clients and customers. 

In return, the generosity of our partners helps Sense to support people with complex disabilities to live life to the full. We supported over 30,000 children and adults in 2023. Can you help us reach even more?

Drop us an email on [email protected] with your phone number, and we’ll get in touch to find out more about how you’d like to support Sense.

“We gained invaluable team-building opportunities and Sense were also kind enough to provide us with a BSL course in-house – the sign language is still used today by colleagues in Cadbury World!”
