Employee Volunteering requests normally fall into two categories.

Group Activities

These projects can range from decorating, gardening, make-overs and events which when completed would make a big difference to the VCSE groups we support.

Volunteer Centre Newcastle tries where possible to connect corporate to community but at times due to corporate demand the community may not have an activity to undertake.

If you require further information, or you are looking for support around Employee Volunteering, contact us here.

The information we need

  • How many Employees are looking to get involved?
  • When do you want to complete the activity?
  • Do you have any staff that require reasonable adjustments, for example due to disability?

“Skill Based” volunteering

This is when an employee wants to volunteer as an individual, to use their own skills and experience to help an organisation or group.  For example, a member of staff from HR may support a board with an HR policy.

If you are an employee looking for more information on skill-based volunteering, please contact us.

The information we normally need, to begin the matching process, includes:

  • A short paragraph explaining what skill you want to share and the tasks you would be happy to complete;
  • When you would be available. For skill sharing this can be using your allotted time in blocks rather than a whole day. It will be your choice;
  • If you have a specific charitable cause you would like to support.

Our partners Connected Voice ARE focusing on Employee Supported Volunteering in Newcastle, which pairs private businesses operating in Newcastle with Newcastle-based charity organisations.

The aim of this is that businesses and their employees provide their time to share their specific skills with charities that would benefit from these skills. Businesses can also run a workshop if they would prefer.

Skills they are looking for include HR, digital, health & safety, branding, marketing and communication, writing strategies and business plans, and social media.

These skills would make a positive difference to charity organisations and the community
