This event is for leaders from businesses and charities to share their experiences and ideas around employee volunteering within the workplace. This is a great way to learn more about this topic, about each other and also contribute your own thoughts to generate interesting discussions and future volunteering collaborations.

Volunteering isn’t just about outreach into the community but can also be a way to involve people in the workplace and allow both sides to gain new experiences, insights & share skills.
