Companies

Arrels works to transform the lives of homeless people in Barcelona, but we cannot do it alone. The support of the administration and of citizens is of vital importance. So too is the support of companies and entities.

Get your team involved in the challenge #nobodysleepingonthestreet, sensibilize yourselves to the reality of homeless people and contribute towards creating a better society.

How can I get involved?

  • Offer economic support to rent a flat, equip a new home, or help with the attention services and the activities of our open centre. Download the catalogue with the projects available to finance (in spanish) and make a donation.
  • Mobilize your coworkers to organise a company meeting, a dinner, a party, or simply allocate money you pay for a morning coffee to Arrels’ projects. We can offer you a merchandising pack.
  • Create a solidarity challenge and invite your relatives and friends. It can be a race, an excursion… whatever you want! Plus, you can link your challenge to any of the projects that we haven’t made possible because of the lack of funding.
  • Stroll through Barcelona with us alongside a person who has lived on the street and see the spaces that have shaped their experience. A way to see our city with different eyes, to share time outside the work environment and better understand the problem of homelessness. Price: 20 euros / person (between 4 and 9 participants) or 15 euros / person (between 10 and 15 participants).
  • Teambuilding in the Arrels workshop. Participate with your team in a teambuilding activity led by people who have lived on the street, with Companies for good. You will build a stool with recycled materials while enhancing team cohesion, creativity and communication skills. Price: between 1,200 and 1,500 euros, depending on the participants.
  • Corporate volunteer work with your team. Arrels offers to companies’ workers the opportunity for occasional and specific volunteer work with the organization. You can get involved doing craftwork, helping raising awareness, etc.
  • Donate 1 euro of your payroll to Arrels. Join the Teaming initiative and allocate one euro a month to strengthen our projects that benefit the homeless. One small gesture means being able to help in many situations.
  • Organise a charity collection. There is always a lack of clothes in Arrels’ wardrobe. Especially jeans (sizes 40-48), shoes and trainers (sizes 42-46). In winter, there is also a need for blankets and sleeping bags. Contact us to know what we currently need.

And what happens after you get involved?

The collaboration is not only a specific action. The goal is to work together to raise awareness and to look for new ways to keep making our goal possible: #nobodysleepingonthestreet. That is why, at Arrels:

  • We explain good practices of collaboration through our website.
  • We provide material to organise activities that help homeless people.
  • We offer you a stamp of a key company so you can put it in your website or your office and we will invite you to witness the progress you are making possible.
