When a client is first referred to us, we spend time getting to the heart of what they’d want from a befriender. We need to take great care over the ‘matches’ we create. Thanks to Social Good Connect we now have a much wider pool of potential matches. The platform has enabled us to bring new, skilled people on board and get us moving quickly and efficiently.

Charity

After the first lockdown almost half the firm was furloughed, and many of those people had never spent more than two weeks off work before. It can make people a bit lost. Not only did volunteering provide support to the wider community, but also provided a small element of support to furloughed colleagues.

FAQs

Aside from simply being a good thing to do, there are many business benefits to employee volunteering. From increased employee engagement, to supporting your employees’ mental wellbeing, and building your reputation – there are lots of reasons to get involved.

Please contact us if you would like more details.

This is a question that we get a lot and the short answer is, it’s up to you! Social Good Connect employees each get two hours a week to dedicate to volunteering activities but the average amount of time that most companies offer is two days.

We do recommend that you offer volunteering time in hours and encourage employee to get involved little and often as long-term support can be far more impactful than one-off team days!

Yes! And more being added all the time. We have members with branches across the UK and we are actively working to expand our presence nationwide.

Yes! One of the things we are 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.

This year 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.

However, many of the businesses partners who have joined us over the last few months have told us that the difficult time they are facing right now is actually exactly why they have got involved right now.

Employee volunteering is a great way to bring your team together over a shared purpose, support their mental health and wellbeing in an impactful way, and give back to the communities that need a little extra support more than ever.
