Corporate Volunteering Days

There’s no better way to promote a sense of team identity and achievement than getting everyone outside and working together for the greater good.

Working for wildlife and nature promotes health and wellbeing too, we’ve seen it for ourselves, as we’ve been working with volunteers for nearly 60 years now.

Roll down your trouser legs (gorse is prickly) and grab some gloves from us and join us - out at some stunning reserves for a day of great work for wildlife.

We make each day bespoke, so you can choose the reserve, the date and the task to suit your business, your staff and maybe even your customers.

It’s loads of fun, you leave a great legacy of good work for Dorset and you also get to improve staff wellbeing, team identity, corporate identity, communication, morale and the effects last.

We’ll look after you, providing detailed joining instructions, tools, gloves etc needed for the activities, health and safety, including risk assessment, tool talks, supervision and first aiders. So, what are you waiting for? Get on! Get Out (with us)!
