We are often approached by organisations who are looking to undertake a corporate volunteering opportunity for their team. Employee volunteering is a fantastic way to support the local community, whilst offering a wonderful opportunity for your employees to develop valuable personal and professional skills. Additionally, these events are a great way to encourage team building. We have successfully organised these types of opportunities for staff from Cardiff University, Welsh Assembly Government and Admiral.
Although this is not our main area of work, please do get in touch with the office and we can discuss your requirements (02921 676780, firstname.lastname@example.org).
How can my company get involved?
Many of our partner organisations are often looking for groups of volunteers to come and assist them with a short project. Often covering either a morning, afternoon, or full day. Previous projects have included assisting a group of adults with learning disabilities to undertake a litter pick, decorating the communal room of a shelter for single parents and tidying up a garden in a local homeless shelter.
If you are interested in organising a fundraiser for SVC, or you would like further information about how your Company can pick SVC as their Charity of the Year, then please contact the SVC Manager to discuss – Adrienne on 02921 676780 A.Earls@SVCymru.org
We aim to facilitate a minimum of 1 one-off volunteering opportunity per month. In December and February there are much more due to events celebrated at that time of that year (Winter Giving Week in December, and National Volunteering Week celebrated in February).
One-off events are open to anyone who wants to undertake a “taster” in volunteering, without completing vetting and training. They are usually group activities led by an SVC staff member. Previous events have included – a secret Primary School make-over, a Christmas party in a local homeless shelter, decorating a waiting room in a hospital, and a valentine’s themed gathering for the families of seriously ill children in hospital.
