The Employer Supported Volunteering project at Voluntary Action Leeds (VAL) helps companies and statutory organisations find volunteer opportunities with charities and non-profit organisations. These can be for individual employees to share their skills or teams of colleagues to spend a day doing practical activities like painting, gardening or supporting an event. To find out more, contact VAL by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. There may be a charge to the employer for this service.
