Corporate Social Responsibility
The REP's leading education and outreach programme is the most diverse of any cultural organisation in the city. It's at the heart of what we do.
Each year we work with over 4,500 young people as well as delivering projects for marginalised adult groups such as people living with dementia, ex-offenders and people at risk of homelessness.
We can offer corporate partners the chance to address a range of their CSR objectives and to make a real difference to the local community. Opportunities can include:
- Subsidising tickets for local disadvantaged school children
- Sponsoring our youth theatre
- Funding bursaries for our youth theatre and artist development schemes
- Supporting large scale community projects
- Funding REP education projects delivered in local schools
- Funding apprenticeships
- Volunteering opportunities for staff
HSBC UK – Theatre for Elders
In an exciting partnership between The REP and HSBC UK, a new project with residential care homes across the city will benefit those living with dementia. The project aims to enable those living with dementia to socialise in order to decrease their sense of isolation. Interactive theatre workshops will take place in care settings and will explore memories and emotions linked to shows at The REP. The project also includes theatre visits, backstage tours, storytelling sessions and a chance to meet the actors. Arts-based activities can have a profound impact on dementia patients, helping them to thrive and communicate, contribute and in turn feel valued. Rachel Cranny, Head of Fundraising said: “We are extremely grateful to HSBC UK for their support and delighted to be working with them ahead of their becoming our neighbours later this year. We passionately believe in the potential of this project to make a real impact on the elders that take part.”
