Corporate Volunteering

We work with corporate supporters to create meaningful partnerships. The support makes a significant difference to over 800 women and girls accessing the Centre each year. We are passionate about engaging with organisations to develop rewarding charitable engagement and fundraising opportunities. There are a host of benefits for organisations who provide employees with dedicated time to volunteer and give back:

 

Engaged and motivated: the more employees are encouraged to volunteer, the more engaged they are within their place of work. This includes greater productivity, employee satisfaction and employees with higher morale. Employees whose employers implement volunteering programs are more engaged and report higher levels of both autonomy and support from their co-workers and supervisors.

Enhanced skills and personal development: volunteering gives employees a fresh perspective and even more of a chance to grow. It gives them leadership and learning opportunities that may not have been readily available within the workplace. In addition to this, it allows them to work with different resources and new teams which in turn, opens their eyes to different challenges and stimulates creativity.

Personal benefits: volunteering can have some amazing personal benefits for your employees. It can help them to find meaningful ways to use their skills and resources to benefit a cause close to their hearts, feel connected to the community with a sense of social responsibility. This can be hugely effective in making employees feel valued and allows them to see just how important their skills are. Research has also shown that people who volunteer report lower levels of stress, higher self-confidence and reduced risk of depression, which is not just a benefit to employees but employers as well.
