Corporate volunteering

By volunteering their time or expertise your employees can help to change the lives of adults with learning disabilities, while gaining new skills and experience.

It doesn’t matter how big or small your organisation is, or how many employees you have, corporate volunteering is a great way for your employees to make a difference.

And by enabling your employees to volunteer for Hft, your business can benefit through: -

  • Greater employee engagement
  • Stronger skills in a range of areas including leadership, teamwork, communications and event planning
  • Develop community partnerships
  • Build a committed workforce
  • Break down social barriers

Volunteering as a group is a great way to build team spirit and to use the skills of your employees to support a good cause. Teams of volunteers often work on specific projects or initiatives; from painting and decorating someone’s first independent home to organising a summer party.

These are just examples of our volunteering opportunities; you can find more information by visiting our main volunteering page, emailing volunteering@hft.org.uk, or by getting in touch with us so that we can discuss your volunteering interests.

Supported employment

You can also help us to change the lives of adults with learning disabilities by offering work placements for the people we support.

Meaningful employment is an important part of a fulfilling life, so we run a number of projects that provide work opportunities. These schemes are very successful – and the more employers we can find to offer places, the more people we can help. We’d be happy to talk to you about how this might work at your business, and how we would support you to ensure each placement is a success.

There are other ways you can help people with learning disabilities to find real work – such as helping people to write CVs and application letters and developing interview skills.
