Today is #EmployerSupported&skilledVolunteeringDay, Volunteers' Week Day 3.

Volunteers’ Week is supported and celebrated by small grassroots organisations as well as larger, household-name charities, who together run hundreds of activities across the UK. These activities showcase and celebrate volunteers and the contribution volunteering makes in our communities. 

Volunteers’ Week 2021 is a time to say thanks. It goes without saying that volunteers have played a key role in the pandemic response. During an exceptionally difficult year, people from all walks of life around the UK have taken the time to volunteer and make a huge difference their communities – just as they do every year. 

On this day, we want to recognise the continued contributions of skilled and employer supported volunteers by showcasing their impact around the UK. 

ZS associates have been working with Community Southwark since 2018, they have supported many different charities including us at Community Southwark.

Here is just a small example of some of the work they have done to support organisations in the borough:

  • Ran two Impactathons at theZSoffices. One for Black, Asian and ethnic minority led organisations and one for different organisations in the borough  
  • Worked with SL Creatives on their business and income generation plans leading to long-term relations 
  • Dedicated time and efforts supporting Community Southwark with our CRM Airtable database
  • Delivered Management training to the Community Southwark management team
  • Supported the Carer's Hub team to think through and develop their mission and vision statements, as well as strategic and tactical plans. Over the course of a six-month project,ZSalso worked hand-in-hand with the Carer’s Hub team to develop a value proposition and accompanying communication plan 
  • Support and helping Bankside Open Spaces Trust 
  • A new incredible project that has just started, working with The Museum of Diversity to showcase black history and other minority groups through education and a virtual museum.

We want to say a big THANK YOU to ZS Associates! 

What is Employee (pro-bono) volunteering?

Employee volunteering occurs when employees from a corporate organisation, or business, volunteer to support a charity. This type of volunteering can take various forms and can be hugely beneficial for both the employees and the charity involved.
