Developing our corporate partnership with award-winning estate agent Yopa
29 Mar 2023
We are delighted to announce the continuation of our corporate partnership with award-winning estate agent Yopa.
The partnership, which began with an initial six-month agreement in September 2022, supports our work and the activities of our children and young people’s advisory group, Changing our World.
During the course of the partnership to date, Yopa’s Head of Scotland, Anthony Conroy joined us a sponsor speaker at our annual conference in November, an event co-designed by Changing our World and featuring one of their members as a keynote speaker.
The next six months of the partnership will include Yopa’s invaluable support of a new event in the children’s sector, our forthcoming Children’s Mental Health Conference in May, and their ongoing sponsorship of Changing our World as the group continues to lobby government on the issues on which they want to see change and progress made.
Verona Frankish, CEO of Yopa, says:
“We’re thrilled to be continuing our partnership with Children in Scotland. Engaging with local communities is a big part of life at Yopa, which is why we are proud to support Children in Scotland’s aim of giving all young people in Scotland the chance to flourish. Over the last few months, we’ve been lucky enough to sponsor and attend their annual conference, and we’re looking forward to supporting the upcoming Children’s Mental Health Conference in May. For our teams and our clients, a healthy work-life balance is pivotal, which is why the topic of mental health resonates so strongly with us.”
Anthony Conroy, Head of Yopa Scotland, adds:
“Along with the rest of the Yopa Scotland team, I’m delighted to be continuing our support of Children in Scotland, starting with the Children’s Mental Health Conference in May. As a father of two I feel personally connected to Children in Scotland’s work in promoting equality and rights for young people, and as a local business owner within Yopa, I’m proud to support a charity that makes a positive difference in our communities. The Children’s Mental Health Conference could not come at a better time, and we’re delighted to lend our support to an event that highlights intersectional approaches to better mental health for all young people.”
Judith Turbyne, Chief Executive of Children in Scotland, says:
“I’m so pleased that Yopa have chosen to continue their support of Children in Scotland and the work we do.
Over the past six months, they were not only directly involved in our Annual Conference, but the partnership supported the work of our children and young people’s advisory group, Changing our World – helping shape our activities as well as celebrating their fifth anniversary!
Looking ahead for the next six months, Yopa’s support will continue with Changing our World while also directly supporting our forthcoming Children’s Mental Health Conference in May. This support will mean we can keep ticket prices as low as possibly, making the event more accessible to the children’s sector.
It’s of great value to us to be in a partnership with an organisation with such closely aligned values and a shared belief in achieving our vision that all children have an equal chance to flourish.
I look forward to seeing how the next six months progresses.”
