Groundwork London

Corporate Volunteering in London

COVID-19 UPDATE:

Groundwork London’s Corporate Volunteering activities are starting up again! We are taking bookings from June onwards and are looking forward to welcoming you and your teams back to reconnect with each other and the outdoors, after months of remote-working. 

In line with the latest government guidelines, we have adapted the way we run our activities with some limitations on the number of people and activities to ensure that they are COVID-19-safe.

We receive a great deal of interest in our activities so to avoid disappointment please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us and find out about our available opportunities.

Whether you’re looking for a one-off challenge day or a longer-term programme of volunteering, we’re confident we can offer your employees an unique volunteering experience. They’ll learn new skills, strengthen team relations, and gain a great sense of achievement, while directly supporting local communities.
Who will you be supporting?
By volunteering with us, you can be sure to have a lasting impact on the lives of Londoners. We work with a wide range of people and communities in London that experience multiple challenges, including residents living in poverty, refugees and asylum seekers, and elderly people at risk of social isolation. If you would like to support a particular community or cause, please let us know.
Where will the volunteering take place?
We have close ties with community groups and landowning organisations throughout London who need help transforming their open spaces. These might be sheltered accommodation gardens, open space on housing estates, community farms, schools, parks, woodlands, or nature reserves.
Do your employees need any special skills or knowledge?
No previous skills, knowledge, or experience are required. Our experts will guide you and support you in learning new skills throughout the day. On the day, volunteers are usually split into a number of teams who work on a range of different tasks, often rotating tasks over the course of the day. You might learn about habitat management, biodiversity, horticulture, landscaping, food growing, carpentry, painting, or other light building tasks, depending on the type of activity you choose.
What are the benefits of volunteering with us?
From our experience and feedback from our corporate partners, we know your business and employees will benefit from volunteering with Groundwork London. Your business can develop valuable links with local communities and make a positive, visible impact. Team relations will be strengthened and morale boosted, with everyone finishing the day with a genuine sense of achievement.
As a charity, Groundwork London charges corporate partners a fee to cover the cost of organising corporate volunteering event. This fee is determined by the type of project and the number of employees involved.
