Employee volunteering

Employee volunteering is a very rewarding, fun experience while making a positive difference at the same time

Employee volunteering is a very simple and effective way for your organisation to support a local project. Simply by rounding the troops and setting them to work on a project, you can make a positive difference whilst creating a rewarding and fulfilling experience for staff.

Meet the team from Zurich

Last year the floor in our Barry charity shop had become damaged. We had to close the shop and were looking at several weeks before we could get a company in to redecorate after the new floor had been laid. The team from Zurich stepped in and got it done no time which meant we could re-open the shop much earlier than we had planned. Gareth Richards from Zurich said:

It was our pleasure and happy to do anything to help, it was extra special for me to be able to help as my Nephew has cerebral palsy and has had treatment at the therapy centre. My sister said you guys are remarkable for the work you do, so it was nice to be able to give a little something back. I know the guys had a great time and you were so accommodating and couldn’t of done enough for us.

Please note: at the moment, due to the coronavirus virus, we are unable to offer face-to-face employee volunteering opportunities, but if you would like to chat about how we might work together now (virtually!) or in the future, please contact Claire Walker, Corporate Relationship and Fundraising Manager, on 02920 522600 or at clairew@cerebralpalsycymru.org

Clara’s story

When we completed our first baby block of 6 weeks of therapy at Cerebral Palsy Cymru’s therapy centre it was a life-changer. We are truly grateful to have found such help and guidance amongst the darkness, we can now look forward to the future, thanks to Cerebral Palsy Cymru.

Sienna’s story

The early intervention programme, has been such a comfort to us as we were doing something positive from pretty much day one for Sienna. The support and comfort that Cerebral Palsy Cymru provides means that the therapy doesn’t just stop with the child who receives it, the whole family benefits.
