Employee volunteering

Looking for a way to build the skills of your workforce and make a real tangible difference to communities at the same time? Our volunteering opportunities are streets ahead of typical teambuilding excursions. Real life community projects provide the perfect challenge for teams and also create long-term links helping people and places benefit from the skills of your employees.

We’ve had fantastic feedback from participants who love taking time out to give something back. We’ve helped companies get involved in creating community gardens, transforming neglected green spaces, mentoring young people and more.


  • Impact on the ground: your hard work is an incredibly useful resource to community projects. Our projects are grassroots, so you will be working directly with the people your work is helping.
  • Motivated staff: skills are developed and teams are made stronger by solving real life problems out of people’s usual comfort zones. It’s great fun too!
  • Business reputation: you’ll leave a positive community legacy that you can be proud of and your customers will value too.

The process

We work with your organisation to identify activities tailored to your organisational needs, staff skills and staff development needs. We take care of planning the activities, involving community groups and external partners, carrying out the necessary risk assessments and sourcing materials and equipment if required.

You can work with us on an ongoing basis with staff committing a certain amount of hours regularly, or through one-off teambuilding days.

It’s not free – organising activities takes a lot of time and we have limited funding. The fee you pay covers our costs and helps keep our charity sustainable.
