Employee Volunteering

Skills Sharing
Share your business’s skills - Perhaps your business could help us out by sharing your staff’s expertise. We always need people with business skills such as Marketing, IT and Administration, either as a one off, or on a regular basis.

Donate your time
Donations of in-kind support are just as important as any financial donations. Can your business provide a service to us that we would otherwise have to pay for?

Take on a Team Building Challenge
We have a list of fundraising ideas and challenges that your business can get involved in; get in touch for more details. Whatever you decide, we will assign you a dedicated Trust Team Member to support you every step of the way and provide you with all the materials you need to make your fundraising a success.

Other Ways Your Business Can Help

Telling your customers about us – we are always looking for opportunities to tell members of the public what we do. We can provide you with leaflets that you could include in your mailshots or that sit on your reception desk, or text to add to your email signatures. We also have collection pots that we can deliver and collect from your premises for your customers’ spare pennies. Help with resources - any help with printing, marketing and other materials that we use is always extremely welcome. Perhaps your business has some spare materials that we could utilise.
Additionally we hold many events throughout the year, and are always looking for venues. You may have the perfect space for us to hold an event – and in return, promote your business to a new audience.

Give As You Earn (GAYE)

A simple way to give a regular donation to the Starr Trust - Give As You Earn.
Once it is set up, a donation is taken from your paypacket each month, before tax! So it costs even less to give more. Employers can match donations, doubling gifts.
