Whether you’re looking to gain work experience and broaden your horizons, demonstrate your commitment to tackling environmental issues or just make your neighbourhood a better place to live, Groundwork offers a variety of volunteering opportunities, which ensure both you and your community benefit.

Regular volunteering could help you get to know your neighbours, help you keep fit and active or help you get skills and qualifications. Many of our existing employees began their careers with us as volunteers.

Corporate volunteering

We can deliver programmes of fully serviced volunteer days tailored to meet your organisation’s needs. This includes fun one-off challenge days, or programmes providing opportunities for people across your company and across multiple sites, all of which result in staff learning new skills, building team spirit and motivation and offer volunteers a great sense of achievement in doing something meaningful.

The benefits of volunteering, for your business and people include:

  • more satisfied, motivated and happier staff
  • improved internal team relations
  • increased ability to attract and retain talent
  • increased brand awareness and loyalty
  • promotional opportunities and positive PR stories
  • better relationships with the communities in which you operate.

Groundwork charges for corporate volunteering to cover our costs. Please contact us to discuss the best pricing structure for your team.
