Volunteer Together as a Team

Volunteering together, as a team, is popular and it’s easy to see why.  It is a brilliant way of experiencing something completely different as a group, having fun and crucially achieving something really worthwhile.  Whether you are a team of work colleagues, a group of friends, a faith group or even a family – team volunteering is an easy and enjoyable way to get involved and make a difference. If you’re interested in group/team volunteering opportunities you should have a look at the one-off/event opportunities listed below. To make life easy for you we also have a simple, easy-to-follow Team Volunteering Guidelines.

Team Opportunities for Employees

People who work well together as a team are one of the most valuable assets any employer can have. There are many team building tools available but few are as satisfying, inexpensive and widely beneficial as a community challenge. Rather than spending large amounts of money on a conventional team building day, connecting with a local community-based organisation can provide both employers and teams with many benefits:

  • Great value for money
  • An outstanding sense of achievement for all who take part
  • A real team building experience, impossible to replicate in the training room
  • Delivery of your corporate social responsibility policy objectives

More and more companies, big and small, are now seeing the benefits of team volunteering challenges in their local community. There is no charge for choosing one of the one-off/event team volunteering opportunities below.  (NB: if they happen outside your normal employment hours you should consider time off in lieu arrangements.)

If there’s nothing of interest listed below, you can:

  • Click here to take a look on our volunteer database and what’s on offer across the city – there are currently around 200 opportunities uploaded!
  • Email us with your “offer” of support and we’ll include it in our blog which goes out both to subscribing community and charity organisers, and via our email bulletin to 430+ Glasgow based groups and organisations. Groups can then respond with suitable opportunities/tasks.  (Please note that this process usually requires at least 6 weeks notice if you have a specific date(s) in mind.)
