Staff volunteering

Do you have an Employee Volunteering Day?
A growing number of employers provide staff with annual volunteering days as part of fulfilling their corporate social responsibility aims. If this is something your employer provides please contact us to discuss what kind of opportunity you are looking for and if we have any suitable vacancies.

We can help through our V.I.P Scheme.

Give As You Earn

Many employers operate a payroll giving scheme such as GAYE. This is a great way to donate as it is very tax effective for you as the donor as well as us as a charity, making your donations go further. Ask your employer if they operate a payroll giving scheme.
