Employer Supported Volunteering is where employers encourage, support and provide their employees paid time off to volunteer. We would encourage organisations who offer this to promote the Spark a Change platform to their employees, making it easy for them to explore and offer their time for volunteering opportunities that suit their skills and interests, for local causes they care about.
Some organisations may wish to undertake a corporate volunteering day where a group of employees volunteer their skills to a chosen charity for a day or two. This is often project based and can act as a team building day that can benefit the organisation and the charity. There is sometimes a charge for this to cover resources and admin time.
