Involve Swindon is a network of companies, statutory bodies and voluntary organisations working together to encourage employers and employees to give their time and develop their skills through volunteering in the local community (known as Employer Supported Volunteering).
Involve Swindon is managed by a steering group of representatives drawn from three sectors:
Corporate Sector (Arval, Intel, Honda Manufacturing of the UK Ltd, MidCounties Co-operative, Nationwide, Swindon Marriott, Thames Water, Zurich),
Statutory Sector (Swindon Borough Council) and
Voluntary Sector (Volunteer Centre Swindon and Voluntary Action Swindon).
The administration and brokerage of the volunteering opportunities is undertaken by Volunteer Centre Swindon
Each year, over 600 employees get involved in volunteering opportunities ranging from one day team challenges to the more regular commitment of becoming a charity trustee.
We recognise that employers and employees want a variety of volunteering opportunities and therefore divide our offering into 4 strands – team challenges, skills based volunteering, trustees & governors and regular volunteering.
We advise employers and voluntary organisations on the benefits and practicalities of introducing employer supported volunteering. We make volunteering easier by bringing together employees who wish to volunteer and voluntary sector organisations who need their assistance.
