Many businesses offer their employees an opportunity to volunteer in work time.

This is known as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) or Employer Supported Volunteering and it can include fundraising for a group, or even sharing expertise and resources as well as volunteering.

It can be a great way to support your local community and give your staff a rewarding and fulfilling experience. Staff can volunteer independently or as part of a workplace volunteering scheme (organisations such as Kirklees Council and The Co-op offer these), or as part of a team away day or team building experience with colleagues.

TSL Kirklees Volunteering provides a free service, matching businesses with a suitable local volunteering opportunities.

Covid-Safe Volunteering

If you are volunteering in lockdown, please make sure that you are staying safe and are up-to-date with the current rules and guidance.

From 29th March, you should continue to volunteer from home where possible unless you cannot reasonably do so. You can leave home to volunteer if you are not required to isolate for any reason. Please make sure that you are following the guidelines to stay safe.

From 12th April, we move to Step 2 of the Government's lockdown easing roadmap.  This is when charity shops, libraries, and community centres can reopen, and cafes can serve people outside, which will mean that more people will be volunteering outside their homes and we may start to get more new volunteering opportunities.

If you are looking for a volunteering role, please visit our I Want To Volunteer page.
