At Affinity Workforce, we believe in making a difference. That’s why this year, we’re partnering with Shelter as our Charity of the Year. Now, we invite you to join us in our first fundraising challenge, ‘Give It Up’.



What is the ‘Give It Up’ challenge?



The Give It Up challenge asks participants to give up something they love for one month. Whether you’re a coffee lover, obsessed with chocolate or fancy going veggie, this challenge asks that you commit to giving something up for one month and asking for sponsorship from friends, family and colleagues.


All money raised will go directly to Shelter to support its mission to end the housing emergency.

Why are we supporting Shelter?



Shelter is at the forefront of the housing emergency, providing crucial support, legal advice, and advocacy to those affected by homelessness. The statistics are staggering— in February 2024, there were 142,490 children who are homeless – a jump of 16,960 (14%) in a year.


Right now, there are 279,400 people, many of them families, are living in temporary accommodation across the UK. These are not just numbers; they represent families facing daily struggles for stability and survival.

Doing our part


As well as fundraising for this important cause, asking our staff to participate in the Give It Up challenge helps them to really make an impact and makes for a great team bonding exercise! They can really encourage each other and celebrate their efforts, creating a competitive buzz around the office!
