The Employer Supported Volunteer (ESV) program is a way for busy people to volunteer while at work.
The program helps employers find projects for staff to volunteer during company time. Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, Department of Work and Pensions, XPO Logistics and Premdor are just some of the local employers who take part.
In 2019-20 the scheme helped 52 charities and groups in Barnsley, by hosting 200 volunteer events, involving 863 volunteers from 15 different companies! It is estimated to have brought £74,730 social return on value for the people of Barnsley by contributing an amazing 5778 volunteer hours.
If your organisation or department is interested in taking part in Employer Supported Volunteering let us know, and we'll find a project that's right for you.
Also, if you are a community group, charity or project based in Barnsley that would like some support through the scheme, please do get in touch to discuss your needs.
