Work Force Volunteering for ‘One Off’ Projects?

At Support Staffordshire we regularly have businesses across Staffordshire who contact us asking for ‘one off’ volunteering opportunities for their workforce. For example a request was recently received for an organisation with a workforce of 20 people who are looking to volunteer for a day in March.

Does your organisation have any projects that they would like a group volunteers to undertake for a day? Volunteers could be involved in projects such as gardening, cleaning, painting and decorating or anything else that you have identified could be of use to your organisation.

Do you know someone who puts dignity at the heart of the care or support that they give? Take the time to thank them for their support by nominating them for a Dignity Award.

These awards provide the opportunity to recognise and reward those people and organisations in the community whose actions make a difference and serve as an example to others. This can include young people, family carers, community groups, supportive friends or a neighbour.

Closing date for nominations is Wednesday 6th January 2016.
