Team Volunteering

Corporate team volunteering is a great way to build teams, develop individuals and make a real difference in your community. Participate works with some of the largest companies in Yorkshire to develop and deliver their team volunteering.

We are unique, providing a bespoke service that meets the needs of the volunteering organisation, whilst maximising the impact for the community organisations we support.

Skills Volunteering

Our programmes provide extensive opportunities to use your business skills and expertise to support the development of outstanding community organisations. Whatever you do we can find the place where your skills will make a real difference. For larger companies we offer programmes of engagement through our Social Venture partnership and Leadership Challenge.

Donations and Funding

We work with businesses to develop giving programmes that provide real benefit to the communities they serve. From a roomful of furniture to a major grants programme we can help you to find the right way to use your resources for community benefit.

‘Working on projects with Participate is such a joy! We love seeing the positive impact on our local community, and we see the benefits of taking part in a team challenge when we get back to the office. But most of all, we have fun!’

‘Participate have provided us with opportunities for team volunteering and individual volunteering and almost 200 colleagues have been involved. Together we have created community allotments, built sensory school gardens, painted community buildings, wrapped Christmas presents for under privileged children and delivered workshops to aspiring social entrepreneurs. Working with Participate enables Morrisons to make a valuable contribution to the community around our head office’.

‘It was an emotional moment when I stepped into the back garden – a bit like these TV make over programmes!’

‘Social Venture Partnership has provided opportunities for community and employee engagement across the business. Our colleagues have been involved in mentoring, skilled volunteering and team challenge activity to help kick start the new ventures. This is a great example of where businesses can leverage their peoples expertise across a wide range of skills to support the growth of some great ideas. We’re proud to be part of this fantastic initiative’
