Corporate and Community Partnerships

Nationally, the demand for employee volunteering is on the rise. NCVO (a national organisation that champions volunteering) research has found that whilst 72% of companies expect to increase their involvement in corporate/community partnerships, the major barrier to organising successful Employer Supported Volunteering (ESV) programmes is finding voluntary opportunities.

Volunteer Centres are recognised as being experts in the field of volunteering. We would be happy to talk with you about working together to achieve your ESV objectives. Whether you are thinking about a team building day, are planning a one off event or would like advice on developing a comprehensive ESV programme, why not talk to the Volunteer Centre team and find out how you can achieve your business goals and make a real impact in your local community?

Volunteer Centre Dacorum can help your business to involve staff as volunteers in the Dacorum community. Employee volunteering has excellent benefits for staff development, improved morale and takes your Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) activities to a new level. Working with Connect Dacorum, we encourage private, public and voluntary sector organisations to work together to foster meaningful corporate and community partnerships and deliver effective Employer Supported Volunteering (ESV) activities.

We work with employers and community groups to set up volunteering projects and with businesses to help them develop the right ESV programme to deliver their aims and objectives.
