team volunteering

Since 1994 we have been helping groups of people, typically teams of employees to source team volunteering opportunities

Since 1994 we have been helping groups of people, typically teams of employees to source team volunteering opportunities.

Short duration, practically based opportunities are most popular and a great way for organisations to get tasks completed that otherwise wouldn’t be done.

With our help, scores of local volunteer involving organisations have had literally hundreds of projects completed by teams of volunteers. They have ranged from simple gardening projects to refitting a therapy unit.

Where should you start?

If you are a volunteer involving organisation you will probably be able to identify tasks or projects that would improve your surroundings and benefit both you and your service users. It may be a fresh look for part of your premises or improvements to your grounds. It may be organising and staging an event or help with another one-off task. Often lack of funding and resources can prevent these projects being done. If you are thinking of offering a team volunteering opportunity you may be unsure how to go about it and if so please get in touch with us.

Team Volunteering is a true win-win. Organisations get vital projects completed and teams have the best team building experiences available while making a huge contribution to the community.

If you would like more help or information on any aspect of offering a team volunteering opportunity please call Clare Mangan on 0131 225 0630 or email clare.mangan@volunteeredinburgh.org.uk.
