If your company would like to participate in a corporate volunteering event and get a team of volunteers together to support Brayard Estate in Peckham, we would like to hear from you. For a competitive fee we can create and run fun bespoke activities that shall be a great benefit to both your staff and local Southwark community projects run at Brayards Estate. Plus at the same time help improve the image of your organisation through working with us to implement this great corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative.
Corporate Volunteering can provide the following benefits to your company:

We may also be able to offer your team an inside volunteer activity such as painting a community hall.
For team volunteering we provide first aid cover (trained first aider), risk assessments and liability insurance to cover for each individual volunteer team event. We provide all the tools and equipment for each task but we do ask companies / corporate volunteer teams taking part to donate some money to cover costs of materials and other expenses.
We normally provide light refreshments such as tea/coffee and biscuits. Plus we can provide lunch if the company can provide money to cover this expense, but in general most corporate volunteer teams prefer ordering their own food or going to local cafes / restaurants.
Individual Corporate Employee Volunteering
We can offer a limited number of individual corporate employee volunteering opportunities at our offices (admin, PR, accounting), plus opportunities on outdoor practical nature conservation projects, organic food growing projects, projects working with local children and many other employee volunteering possibilities.
On these schemes we are keen to work with companies to offer their employees longer term opportunities, that will benefit Brayards Estate, local communities and provide the individual staff members with fantastic opportunities which provide relevant job experience training.

Quote from Anne Gilding, Head of Brand & Communications, Impax Asset Management
“Impax’s volunteering day at Brayards was our second experience of corporate volunteering and a great team building day for our team of 10. The weather held for us and John kept us busy on a range of outdoor tasks and hopefully made a bit of a difference! See you next year? “
