Corporate volunteering

Team building with a difference!

No matter what size your organisation, corporate volunteering is a great way for your employees to make a difference and develop their skills.

Your business stands to benefit too - showing a commitment to supporting the local community is known to create a positive culture within the workplace, boost morale and improve staff retention.

Here at Spark Somerset we run the local volunteer service, and have extensive experience of facilitating corporate volunteering opportunities for local businesses.

What activities could you help with?

Whether it’s helping with an outdoor conservation project, supporting vulnerable people in the community, or running a fundraising event, we can help you to find a project that fulfills your objectives and enables you to do something truly rewarding as a team.

We can also match individuals who would like to share their professional skills with a local charity or community group. Activities could involve supporting a short-term project, delivering a training session or workshop, or becoming a charity trustee. This offers a fantastic development opportunity for the employee, and would really benefit the charity they support.

Here is some feedback from we've received from previous participants:

It was one of the best days we’ve ever had! We are so grateful for ARK at Egwood's hospitality and kindness. They were such brilliant hosts and we left feeling really inspired by the great work they are doing.

We had a fantastic day with EAQ Manor Farm! We were able to help an inspiring organisation and it also gave us the opportunity as a team to work together outside of the office. My employer offers time off for volunteering and I’d never taken up the opportunity to use it before now - I would highly recommend it!

I’d really recommend a trustee role to anyone looking to make a difference. Talk to your employer if they don’t offer volunteer days, as the professional benefits will help them too.
