Volunteers are at the heart of many of our communal institutions, not least at Jewish Care, whose vision is a society in which people support and care about one another and are able to participate fully in their community.
Through its Employee Volunteering Programme, Jewish Care is providing a route through which employers can actively encourage their workforce to volunteer their time within the charitable sector. By working flexibly with these companies to create focussed volunteering opportunities that meet their interests and schedule, the scheme reaps a myriad of benefits and good will for all involved.
There are many ways that employee volunteers can contribute their individual skills and talents, by teaching skills, sharing their interests and experiences, or simply playing board games with residents and day care users.
The JLC is pleased to support this important project. If your company would be able to participate in a volunteering programme or you would simply like to explore the possibilities of using one of the schemes, please contact the EV team at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Jewish Care website.
