Our Partners

We have worked hard to establish our brand as one of integrity and quality. Our prominent branding is appearing more and more, supported with their numerous strategic partnerships nationwide.

These partnerships have helped the QTS brand become one of the biggest supporters of the UK sporting industry, right through from grass root local teams to professional teams and athletes.

In 2018, QTS is proud to be working alongside the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI), an active citizenship programme that raises awareness among young people about philanthropy. Run by The Wood Foundation in Scotland, QTS has signed up to be the principle funder for YPI in Ayrshire, commiting to the initiative as part of a three year deal.

Through YPI, young people from across a whole school year group work in small teams to actively research and understand the big social issues that affect their local community.  In each school the programme culminates with a grand final where the very best teams compete against one another to secure a £3,000 grant for their chosen local charity. Representatives from QTS have actively been involved with the 19 schools taking part through Ayrshire, visiting schools and judging at some of the finals across the region.

Scottish pupils taking part in YPI work in small teams in their secondary school year groups, to consider the needs of their local community and identify a grassroots social service charity they believe can make a positive contribution. Having been guided on how to analyse the charity’s management and strategy, they are encouraged to build relationships with the charity and then exercise their skills in advocacy and public speaking to make a case as to why their proposed charity should be awarded £3,000.
