The Centre for Volunteering will help your organisation to establish and improve your volunteering program through our many opportunities
The Centre is being contacted by an increasing number of corporations wishing to engage their employees in volunteer activities. Their aim is to assist their community and demonstrate their Corporate Social Responsibility.
These organisations have both large and small teams willing people who are happy to take on a big or small job and they don’t mind getting their hands dirty! The average activity lasts for half to one full day for groups’ sized five people and up. So much can be achieved!
Using its extensive knowledge and links with the NFP community, The Centre matches these corporations with a suitable NFP partner/s and facilitates their employees to volunteer their time in a structured way with measurable outcomes.
We need your help to meet the increasing demand! Do you have a large job that you need volunteers to complete, for example?
