Join our Keech Corporate Volunteering Programme to support YOU in achieving your community volunteering strategy.


Why should your employees participate? 

We can offer a fun & rewarding day at Keech Hospice Care.

  • Give your employees a chance to be heroes.
  • Support your local Hospice by providing much needed time, expertise & donations.
  • Inspire & engage your individual employees


Why should your organisation participate? 

We can offer a range of volunteering options and can scale our volunteering package from 4 to 20 employees.

  • Build teamwork within your organisation outside of the office environment and align with your employees social responsibility values (as below**).
  • Work in partnership with us to achieve your social aims.
  • Benefit from your community investment with promotion on your chosen social channels.


‘Corporate Volunteering’ at Keech is an excellent way to team build and give your time to a great cause!

It is widely recognised that employee volunteering provides a range of benefits for companies. In a report by Circle Research8 the top three business benefits of employee volunteering among the business surveyed are employee engagement (40%), PR & Reputation (38%) and Team Building (21%). In addition, it supports recruitment of new employees, in particular younger people*.

**More than half of recent graduates are seeking a company that has corporate social responsibility values that align with their own, and 56 percent would consider leaving a company that didn’t have the values they expected.


Choose a structured programme to support you with your Corporate Volunteering aims.

  • We can offer you structured volunteering opportunities for teams of between a minimum of 4 staff and maximum of 20 staff.
  • Your team will be given a short induction at the start of the day, before they roll up their sleeves and get stuck in.
  • Your volunteering could include specific projects like gardening, decorating, or helping at a fundraising event.
  • The opportunities are endless!

As a charity, we need to ensure that we are always working in a way which is sustainable and cost effective.

The fee associated with a Corporate Volunteering day covers the cost of our staff time and planning. From Corporate Partnerships and hospice teams who facilitate our Corporate Volunteering Programme, to our grounds teams who coordinate volunteering teams on the day, to our Catering team who will ensure that all our corporate volunteers are well looked after.

The fee also covers the cost of catering (where applicable), the purchase and maintenance of required equipment, materials, and enough PPE for volunteer teams, to ensure that teams can carry out their activities safely and comfortably.
