volunteer together as a team

Team volunteering is an easy and enjoyable way to get involved and make a difference

Volunteering together, as a team, is really popular and it’s easy to see why.  As a group it’s a great way of experiencing something completely different, having fun and best of all achieving something really worthwhile!  Whether you are a team of work colleagues, a group of friends, a church group or even a family – team volunteering is an easy and enjoyable way to get involved and make a difference.

Straightforward to complete, short duration, one-off opportunities are always available and we produce a list every quarter of what’s currently available.  If you would like a copy of our current list please call Clare Mangan on 0131 225 0630 or email

To make life easy for you we also have a simple, easy-to-follow guide on how to organise a team volunteering event.  You can download our guide opposite (or below on a mobile device).

Team Opportunities for Employees

People who work well together effectively as a team are one of the most valuable assets any employer can have.  There are many team building tools available but few are as satisfying, inexpensive and widely beneficial as a community team volunteering event.

Rather than spending large amounts of money on a conventional team building day, connecting with a local community-based organisation can provide both employers and teams with many benefits:

  • Great value for money.
  • An outstanding sense of achievement for all who take part.
  • A real team building experience, impossible to replicate in the training room.

More and more companies, big and small, are now seeing the benefits of team volunteering challenges in their local community.

There is no charge for choosing one of our “off-the-shelf” team volunteering opportunites and we can even advertise your team to organisations who may be looking for help.  However if you would like the Volunteer Centre to act as a broker between your company and the host organisation a small fee will apply.

If you would like any more information on how we can help with your community involvement strategy please call Clare Mangan on 0131 225 0630 or email
