Today, corporate social responsibility goes far beyond the old philanthropy of the past – donating money to good causes at the end of the financial year – and is instead an all year round responsibility that companies accept for the environment around them, for the best working practices, for their engagement it heir local communities and for their recognition that brand names depend not only on quality, price and uniqueness but on how, cumulatively, they interact with companies’ workforce, community and environment. Now we need to move towards a challenging measure of corporate responsibility, where we judge results not just by the input but by its outcomes: the difference we make to the world in which we live, and the contribution we make to poverty reduction.

Corporate Social Responsibility covers many areas from how green an employer is to how much time off employees are given to volunteer in their local community.
The Volunteer Centre aims to encourage corporate social responsibility through Employer Supported Volunteering both the Private and Public Sector to support the Volunteering aspect of Corporate Social Responsibility.
We are able to organise team challenges for members of staff who will be able to take part in a fullfilling activity to support a local charity or community project. Recent team challenges have included members of staff from the Environment Agency who helped rejuvenate a garden area at a Centre for adults with learning difficulties.
If you would like to benefit from a team challenge either as an employer, employee or a charity let us know and we will arrange to meet with you to organise it.
