Every year people generously donate their own money and take part in fundraising activities on our behalf. Whether you’re in recovery yourself, a recovery service provider, family or friends of someone in recovery, or simply want to help, there are many ways in which you can get involved and support our work.

sponsorship

IF YOU ARE AN ORGANISATION YOU CAN SPONSOR OUR CHARITY

Becoming a Sponsor of FAVOR UK will get your name, organisation, logo, and other information in front of a large targeted audience who will not only attend The UK Recovery Walk, but also see our social media updates.

Furthermore, your publicity will reach those people who will drive past our huge billboards, visit our web site and Facebook pages. Hear our media, tv, and radio interviews. Read our press releases, e-mails and other promotional materials.
The UK Recovery Walk is the primary fundraiser for promoting awareness that recovery from addiction is a reality. We depend on your sponsorship to help us fund not only the walk taking place but also helping individuals and families from all over the UK to take part in this wonderful inspiring event.

Your sponsorship will help families and individuals gain life skills, employment support, and assistance with family issues.
Your sponsorship will also help conduct many advocacy activities and provide resources for our members and supporters to work diligently to reduce the stigma of addiction.

Please help us to help others become well again and to show the nation that people can and do recover.

ADVOCATE

JOIN OR START A LOCAL RECOVERY COMMUNITY ORGANISATION (ARCO)
In many cases, recovery voices are marginalised and ineffective when the work is shouldered primarily by lone individuals.
ARCO is an independent, non-profit organisation led and governed by people in recovery and their allies. They educate the community, provide services to people in the early stages of recovery, and advocate for policies that are supportive of recovery.
