Additional ways your company can support us

There are a variety of ways for your company to support Orthopaedic Research UK. Here are some ideas but please let us know if there’s something else you think your company could do to help.

Direct support

We’ll work with you to identify a project for your company to invest in and to outline the impact this will have. You’ll receive progress reports to demonstrate the difference your investment is making.

Commercial partnerships

We have high awareness and an enviable reputation amongst the wider medical community, thus can arrange introductions to top surgeons, consultants and researchers in the UK’s leading universities. Joint-branding can result in excellent commercial outcomes and associating your brand with our research will make your products stand out from your competitors, and could result in IP opportunities.

Employee fundraising

From challenge events such as 5km & 10km runs to entire marathons and cycling events, to national quiz tournaments, we support companies in organising events their employees are proud to take part in. If running or cycling is not for you, we also welcome supporters to join us in cheering on our brave competitors.

Charity of the year

Please consider nominating Orthopaedic Research UK as your Charity of the Year.


Teams of staff can volunteer for Orthopaedic Research UK by helping at our educational events or by working more directly with us in our offices in London. Volunteering is great for team building and gaining insight into the projects your company supports.

Event sponsorship 

Orthopaedic Research UK hosts a range of educational and training events for surgeons, researchers and clinicians throughout the year with sponsorship opportunities. We offer our partners the opportunity to collaborate in the development of these educational events and are happy to link your company name and logo to specific events.

Payroll giving 

One of the most tax efficient ways of giving. If your employee is a basic rate taxpayer, a gift of £5 will only cost them £4 when they donate via Gift Aid. Many corporate partners generously choose to match their employees’ donations.

Gifts in Kind 

We have a list of good quality items we need at any one time, including products such as computers, stationery and furniture.  We also welcome donations of venues for our events/meetings.

Pro-bono support/secondments 

If your company has expertise you think Orthopaedic Research UK could benefit from, or you could offer employees a secondment at Orthopaedic Research UK, please get in touch.

Increasing awareness of Orthopaedic Research UK’s work

We’re keen for as many people as possible to see the Orthopaedic Research UK logo and understand our role in helping to alleviate the suffering of people with disabilities, particularly those with devastating orthopaedic conditions.
