Nottingham based digital marketing agency Hallam Internet has partnered up with local not-for-profit Framework and will offer pro-bono services worth £15,000 to help the charity use new digital techniques in its mission to combat homelessness in the East Midlands in 2018.
Hallam Internet will support Framework in taking advantage of the latest digital strategies and strengthen its online presence. The award-winning agency is making its best consultants available to share their knowledge and advice on digital best practices. Hallam’s experts will also assist with implementing new techniques.
The corporate partnership will also see Hallam raise awareness of the cause and much needed funds through ongoing fundraising activities. The money will support the charity in providing accommodation, training and treatment services for homeless and vulnerable people across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and South Yorkshire.
This significant new partnership comes at a time when the level of homelessness is increasing locally and nationally. The Guardian recently reported that rough sleeper numbers in England have risen for the seventh consecutive year in 2018.
The staff at Hallam recognise this as a problem that urgently needs to be addressed as the majority voted to support Framework this year.
A new initiative at Hallam will also allow employees to offer charitable donations through payroll. Gift Aid will be automatically added to donations, which will also be matched by the company.
Speaking at the project kick-off meeting last week, Susan Hallam, MD at Hallam Internet, said: “We’re really looking forward to working closely with the Framework team over the next year, providing free advice and support on their digital marketing and raising vital funds for a fantastic cause.”
Chris Senior, Fundraising and Communications Manager for Framework, said: “We are very excited about this partnership and cannot thank Hallam enough for choosing us.”
Hallam Internet has a long history of volunteering and fundraising for local not-for-profit organisations. Past charities include Rainbows Children’s Hospice and Samaritans of Nottingham.
