Get Involved

At North East Autism Society we pride ourselves on the excellent, person-centred support and services we offer – but it wouldn’t be possible without the incredible support of the North East business community. We value the range of benefits that corporate
support can bring to the Society and recognise that, for businesses seeking a partnership match, there can be obstacles.

We understand that you as a business want to do more to support your community but may not know where to start. We’re here to help you build a successful partnership with NEAS.

We will make it easy for you to achieve Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) by:

  1. Sharing values and objectives
  2. Demonstrating your Social Value, for very low, to no investment cost
  3. Helping you measure impact and report on CSR progress
  4. Clearly communicating your return on investment, potentially helping you to attract and win more business.
