Employee volunteering

Employee volunteering, where staff donate time and skills during work hours to tackle local social issues, is an effective and powerful way for businesses to invest in their people and local communities.

We offer a range of volunteering programmes to inspire companies to work together to tackle key social issues. Our vision is to make employee volunteering normal practise within business.

Last year, over 18,000 employees from 380 companies supported their local communities through Business in the Community’s volunteering programmes.

We aim to ensure that employee volunteering happens in the areas most in need and is focussed on our key impact areas of Education, Employment and Enterprise.

What we offer

Programmes

Our programmes are designed to deliver measurable benefits to the local community and are delivered through our network of regional offices across the UK.

This means action is taken on the most important issues locally and in the communities with the greatest needs.

Bespoke support

We also offer companies bespoke support tailored to your organisation's individual needs.
