Corporate volunteering allows organisations to take time out and tackle a new project together. Volunteer projects can range from physical work such as building and garden maintenance, to advocacy and support in specialised areas of need. Talk to us about organising a corporate volunteering project for your organisation, and we will create the perfect opportunity.
