Businesses are increasingly opting to do 'social good' as part of their team-building days. We offer local businesses support with designing and delivering volunteering days in Ouseburn Valley, often basing activities around improving green spaces and the environment.

What's included?

At the start of each session, you will be given relevant health and safety guidance and we ask you to follow instructions accordingly. You should act within your own limitations and not carry out any tasks which you feel uncomfortable with. If you are in any doubt about anything whatsoever during the day please do not hesitate to seek clarification. 

We are happy to help you arrange a meal for your team at a local Ouseburn venue.  

We ask our business volunteering groups for a suggested donation of £250 per day. This helps us cover the cost of essential tools and equipment, whilst providing a much-needed contribution to our overall environment support projects. This is not mandatory but much appreciated.
