Corporate volunteering

Corporate volunteering and community-based team building events have a number of benefits, including:

  • strengthening your business by developing team cohesion and improving staff morale
  • motivating staff by promoting employee wellbeing and engagement
  • making a real difference in your local community

Importantly, they are enjoyable, rewarding and satisfying to everyone involved.

We work with community partners to identify projects that are within your locality and timeframe. Our corporate volunteering days have included:

  • painting of community spaces
  • environmental projects
  • people projects
  • gardening

Please contact us for further information and current opportunities.

Corporate volunteers needed!

If you’re a voluntary or community group, we can help by connecting you with volunteers for one-off projects such as:
  • painting your building
  • developing your garden area
  • making or building vegetable boxes
  • other projects you may have in the pipeline - tell us your ideas!
