Businesses

Employer Supported Volunteering is when an organisation provides the opportunity for their employees to get involved in volunteering projects within work time through individual employee opportunities or as a group.

Whether you are looking to introduce employer supported volunteering into your organisation for the first time, or are looking for a way to make the most of your employees volunteering days, Skill Givers can help.
