Support Teenage Cancer Trust with an employee volunteering programme and help us to reach more young people in need.
Why is corporate volunteering important?
Without volunteers, a lot of Teenage Cancer Trust’s work wouldn’t be possible. Whether our corporate volunteers help us to raise vital funds for our life-changing services or offer their skills and knowledge to improve the lives of young people, their support is invaluable.
Every single day, here in the UK, seven young people aged 13 to 24 are told they have cancer. Support from corporate volunteers helps us to ensure that none of them face cancer alone. With specialised nursing care and support, we’re the only charity in the UK dedicated to this need.
As well as supporting a life-changing cause, employee volunteering benefits extend to your business as well. It offers opportunities for corporate charity team-building activities, can enhance your brand’s reputation, and give engagement among your workers a boost.
What are the different types of corporate charity work?
There are many different types of corporate volunteering opportunities. Organisations can fundraise for Teenage Cancer Trust with employee bucket collections on corporate volunteering days, or support our teams at major events. There are also plenty of skilled volunteering roles.
Corporate volunteering examples include selling raffle tickets at fundraising galas, managing auctions at awards ceremonies and cheering on runners from the sidelines of the London Marathon. These all help us to support young people and families facing cancer.
More skilled corporate volunteering roles can involve capturing photos at race finish lines, providing marketing or fundraising expertise to projects, or helping us organise events like concerts featuring some of the biggest names in music, from The Who to Oasis. London corporate volunteering opportunities also come up at our head office, located near Oxford Street in the West End.
What is strategic volunteering?
Volunteering not only helps the cause you’re supporting, but it can also enable employees to learn and develop important skills. When you take on a volunteering role to enhance your career or improve overall team working, it’s known as strategic volunteering. And there are many different ways that you can help Teenage Cancer Trust along the way.
