Patron companies underpin every construction project CRASH undertakes by sharing their professional expertise, products and donations. Our work with homelessness charities and hospices is only possible thanks to the commitment and generosity of our Corporate Patrons.

Take the first step to become a CRASH Corporate Patron

Our Corporate Patrons are the lifeblood of CRASH charity. All of our Corporate Patrons make an annual donation of £9,500. These donations underpin CRASH and every construction project we support, helping homeless people, and children and adults with a life-limiting illness in hospices. Together we create places that care for people.

“CRASH gives us total confidence in the hospice or homelessness charity we’ve been asked to help, as they carry out full due diligence before presenting a project to us. And what we love about our partnership is that it’s not just about raising money – we get fully involved in delivering building projects. Some of our junior staff gained their first experience of a live job working on a CRASH project. But most importantly, through our partnership with CRASH we’ve been able to leave a long-term legacy that will improve the lives of some of society’s most vulnerable people.”

John O’Grady

Divisional Commercial Director – Building at VolkerFitzpatrick

“I have been so impressed with the support and generosity of CRASH in helping Blythe Hospicecare to achieve this refurbishment project. It would not have been possible without this partnership, which included project management support, professional expertise and financial assistance. The outcome, an updated building to support the hospice care we provide in the local community, is a fitting legacy that will benefit patients and their loved ones for years to come.”

Alistair Rogerson

Business Development Manager at Blythe House Hospicecare

“The help and support from CRASH has been invaluable in enabling this construction project to go ahead. I have worked with many charities and organisations over the past 40 years, but none quite like CRASH. The idea behind CRASH, the industry involvement and the practical support, works so well. Our new apartments will help people who have been homeless and are living with learning disabilities and complex mental health issues, on their journey to recovery. We cannot thank CRASH enough for their dedication and support with this project.”
