Employee Volunteering – A partnership between Reciprocate and OCVA       

Oxfordshire Community Foundation’s responsible business group Reciprocate and OCVA are working in collaboration to develop employee volunteering that brings a genuine double benefit: providing employees with meaningful, fun and rewarding opportunities, whilst helping voluntary organisations and social enterprises to draw on the talents, skills and experiences of these individuals and create a positive impact for the community.

We are therefore looking to build a database of exciting, innovative and purposeful volunteering activities for businesses. We are keen to explore opportunities that get away from the practical mass team building days traditionally associated with employee volunteering, and will actively support you to develop mutually beneficial activities that will open employees’ eyes to the diversity of volunteering in Oxfordshire.

If you are interested in working with employee volunteers, please contact OCVA’s Volunteer Centre Coordinator on vol@ocva.org.uk or call 01865 251946.  They will be happy to talk to you about the benefits of working with employee volunteers and support you to develop a suitable opportunity.
