Corporate Volunteering

Is your business looking for a corporate volunteering opportunity? Are you a group of work colleagues trying to find a volunteering day?

We offer a number of Corporate Volunteering Days where groups have the chance to get out of the office for a day and make a difference to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. See further down this page for opportunities that are currently available.

The benefits!

Corporate volunteer days not only help employers meet their own corporate social responsibilities, but they benefit employees in all sorts of ways by:

  • Giving them a sense of satisfaction from making a real difference to conserving and enhancing the National Park.
  • Allowing employees a chance to get out of their normal workspace and work in a new environment as a team.
  • Learning new skills and building stronger teams to go back to the office.
  • Having a thoroughly good day out! 

The difference you can make

The skills and time provided by corporate teams are very valuable to the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority. They help us to tackle more jobs than could be achieved with staff alone and they help to build community links and valuable business support. But more then that, they give people from different backgrounds a chance to learn about and enjoy the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

What to expect

We can offer a number of different activities suited to the abilities and size of your group. Typically our days take place from 10 am – 4 pm, but we can be flexible according to your team’s needs.  You will be met by a member of our Ranger team who will guide you through your day of volunteering.

We take care of the insurance, risk assessments and provide everyone with a safety briefing before the day starts. If protective clothing or equipment is required, this will be made available. All necessary tools and materials will be provided.

All you need is to bring a packed lunch/ drink, wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, be prepared to get mucky and undertake a reasonable level of physical activity – but that’s part of the fun and hopefully you will laugh a lot along the way.
