Free Employer Supported Volunteering Event

March 18, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm

There is a real focus in the sector on Employer Supported Volunteering (ESV) at the moment, for example, the government’s proposed 3-days paid volunteering leave for employees, and small charities often get left out of these conversations but now your views are being sought to help shape the future of ESV.

York Cares in collaboration with the Universities of Hull and Sheffield, the Office for Civil SocietyBusiness in the Community and the National Council for Voluntary Organisations invite you to a regional workshop examining the challenges of engaging with Employer Supported Volunteering (ESV).

This is a brilliant opportunity to network with, and hear from, local and national businesses, infrastructure organisations and representatives from the Cabinet Office whilst inputting in to the future of Employer Supported Volunteering.

Speakers include:

Paul Schofield, Policy Manager, Local Intelligence Team, Office for Civil Society
Kevin Glenton, Senior Development Underwriter, Hiscox
Holly Hennell, Acting Manager, York Cares
Debbie Bullock, Community Investment Manager, Aviva
Shahida Iqbal, Director, Manar Associates Ltd

The event will offer participants from the public, private and third sectors the chance to explore the challenges of building effective and sustainable partnerships to maximise the impact of ESV with the aim of:

  • Enabling third sector organisations to increase the range and diversity of potential engagement channels with businesses.
  • Helping infrastructure organisations to successfully incorporate a sustainable supportive brokerage role for relationships between the third sector and businesses.
  • Direct available business resources and potential infrastructure funding to the third sector so that they have the most effective impact.

In addition, a member of the Office for Civil Society’s Local Intelligence Team will also be providing details of the broader Skills Exchange Campaign and outlining ways in which local organisations can gain support to take these agendas forward.

There is also a small travel expense fund available for five small charity attendees to help them attend this workshop. Please email Jon Burchell directly to find out more about this on: j.burchell@sheffield.ac.uk
