Tapping into corporate volunteers

Volunteering WA’s Corporate Volunteering Program helps community organisations link with businesses wishing to contribute to the community through team-based volunteering and skills-based volunteering.

Volunteering WA can work with your organisation to scope potential projects and maximise corporate support.

We facilitate team-based and skills-based volunteering activities for corporate volunteers that meet the needs of your community organisation. Volunteering WA staff conduct all the pre- and post volunteering planning and logistics, and attend on the day to support your organisation and help things run smoothly.

Team-based Volunteering

Team days could include tree planting, beach clean ups, writing letters to residents and clients, packing baby hampers for new parents, repairing bikes for youth programs, painting and site maintenance, wildlife rehab, microplastic surveys, food preparation for families in need, sorting and packing donations.

Typically a once-off half or full day volunteering activity with a team of 10+ corporate volunteers (during week day business hours).

By engaging with Volunteering WA, we can help you identify, plan and develop your volunteering project/activity.

Volunteering WA's corporate team will liaise with your community organisation to perform risk assessments and Job Hazard Analysis, administer registrations from attendees, organise transport, catering and PPE for the corporate volunteers, attend the activity to facilitate on the day and be a point of contact for employees on the day.

The more developed a project is, the more impact the corporate volunteers will have on your organisation. A positive experience at your organisation will ensure the corporate volunteers leave as supporters and ambassadors for your cause.

Skills-based Volunteering

Corporate volunteers who participate in our skills-based program use their workplace expertise to assist a community organisation. Typical project areas include human resources, business development, strategic planning, project management, mentoring, policy and procedure creation or reviews.

One or more corporate employees provide 8-12 hours of expert support over a period of weeks/months on a specific scope of work.

If you require a larger project, Volunteering WA can investigate getting more than one person working on it and/or break it into sub-projects for various corporate volunteers to work on

Volunteering WA's corporate team works with the NFP to create a specific scope of work and expected outcomes. We then source a suitable volunteer and liaise with all parties throughout the project to ensure a successful outcome.

Corporate volunteering is a workforce that we couldn’t do without. Whether in the warehouse or Community Kitchen they make a huge difference in helping us achieve our purpose. We have a small workforce, so we rely on corporate staff volunteers to help us sort, pack and prepare food for our fellow Western Australians who are doing it tough. Having corporate volunteers coming in regularly has helped in our smooth operations to a large extent. - Smitha Mudradi HR & Volunteer Officer
