Corporate Volunteering 

We have three different types of Corporate Volunteering that you can get involved with:

  • Corporate Volunteers (Practical Projects)– Team volunteering days typically involve the renovation of an onsite area, making use of your team’s skills set whether that is painting, gardening or something more technical such as refitting a kitchen or storage space.  Please note that due to incredible support this year, we are unable to schedule in any further Corporate Volunteering Days this year. Please do get in touch about 2019 projects. 
  • Corporate Volunteers (Events)– Perhaps your team would prefer to help at an event along with our Event Facilitators. You could help with the dog show, with stewarding or on a stall. 
  • Corporate Volunteers (Skills Sharing)– we are a small team and always appreciate support from businesses who are happy and able to share some of their skills, knowledge, expertise and time with us to help support the Charity's work. This could be in areas such as marketing, retail or online. If you think you can help, please do get in touch.
