You can start applying for volunteering opportunities straight away. Some opportunities however may require further checks such as a PVG application or training in some instances so you might not always get started right away. But trust us, that feel good feeling is worth the wait.
Fantastic! You’re our kind of person. We’d love to hear about it! Does the organisation need any additional support? If so we’d love to help. And why not browse SAM while you’re at it? You never know what else may catch your eye. We have got some amazing opportunities, causes and organisations on board and for as little as 10 minutes of your time you can help make a positive impact.
Your employer has signed up to support communities and causes you care about. One of the things we’re most excited about this year is the rise in micro-volunteering and online volunteering. On our digital platform there will be opportunities which could take as little as 10 minutes to complete from the comfort of your desk, your sofa, or even your workday commute! Lack of time is one of the biggest barriers to volunteering, which is why we love the fact that some employers are offering their staff time to volunteer during work hours.
You get to choose your cause and lend your skills for good. We match you to the roles that are right for you with guidance, support, and partnership from our team when you need it.
The last couple of years has not been easy for anyone, and we totally understand if right now doesn’t feel like the right time to take on a new project.
Not everyone wants to volunteer or feel they lack a meaningful purpose. And that’s okay. All we’re doing is providing you with options that suit your skills and interests, which might make you think “actually, that’s something I could do.”
Employee volunteering is a great way to support your mental health and wellbeing in an impactful way, giving back to the communities that need a little extra support more than ever.
