        Acumen Financial Planning (AFP) have supported Grampian Hospitals Arts Trust for seven years. On top of a generous donation each year Acumen help us with marketing our work to show you how we deliver the difference for patients, staff and visitors to NHS Grampian.

        In 2016 APF sponsored our abseil from Ashgrove House and in 2019, just before the pandemic hit, we set up our first art in a workplace session at their new premises. As you can see the AFP team had a whale of a time.

        We had a great session participating in the Art at Work initiative with GHAT and continue to be delighted to work with them. 
        It was lovely to see and feel our team interacting in a completely different way and agree that this enhances wellbeing at work.
        We would highly recommend other businesses to consider supporting this.

          Working with GHAT over the last 8 years has been incredibly rewarding. A small enthusiastic and committed organisation, GHAT is innovative and creative and constantly striving to improve what they deliver. Life can be very unstable in the charity sector but GHAT frequently turns this to their advantage and comes up with exciting and different ways of doing things.

          Profile: Hampton Associates

          Hampton was thrilled to help Grampian Hospitals Art Trust with its most recent Art At The Heart campaign. 

          The last few years have been unlike any other and now, more than ever, we appreciate the extraordinary work that our local charities do for the community in times of need. As a creative marketing agency we felt that partnering with the Grampian Hospital Art Trust was the perfect fit. Not only are they a North-east based charity, but this collaboration enabled us to use our skills and talent to give back to the community and help boost local well-being. 

          There is no doubt that each and every one of us at Hampton have directly or indirectly benefited from at least one of GHAT’s hospital projects. Therefore, knowing that we will play a part in helping make a positive impact on the lives of others in the community, albeit it a small one, has offered the team an enormous sense of achievement.

          Hampton is a brand-focused, creative marketing agency specialising in the energy sector. 

          Based in Aberdeen, Europe’s energy capital, we work with clients to help them solve brand and marketing problems – simplifying the complex and providing clear direction. 

          We don’t apply off-the-shelf methods; instead our team of dedicated brand, design, web and marketing experts live and breathe your objectives – approaching each project as a fresh new challenge. From employee engagement to diversifying products and services, we design brand experiences for employees, customers and stakeholders that increase business value.

          We pride ourselves on being big enough to accommodate significant projects on a global scale, yet small enough to be nimble and responsive. Through combining strategy and creativity Hampton help clients position their brand for success and enable them to stand out in a transitional landscape.
