Corporate Volunteering

Volunteer with us

If your business is located close to one of our communities then why not consider arranging a volunteer day on our site to help us achieve a specific project or improve our appearance.

In return, you will have the opportunity to motivate staff and develop team relationships as well as the satisfaction in knowing that you have done something special to help support adults with learning disabilities lead a life of opportunity.

Projects could include painting, gardening, helping on our farms or in our food centres.  Or you could use your expertise to help in other ways, such as project management, staff training or helping with office admin duties.

Working in partnership over a set period of time, whether that is an intensive 3 days in a row or a commitment to volunteer for a set number of days over an agreed period of time. We can provide a rewarding experience and you may find that staff take away far more than they give.

Projects available will depend on the community and the timing of the request.

Barclaycard volunteers give Larchfield Community a lick of paint

Over 60 employees from Barclaycard’s Stockton-On-Tees Office volunteered at Camphill Village Trust’s Larchfield Community.

It’s something they’ve been doing for the past few years, where a team of volunteers come out of the office for the day and spend time helping us to make some improvements to our community.

From painting sheds, tidying gardens and open spaces to mending raised planter beds, the volunteers have had the chance to learn some new skills over the past two weeks too.

As well as helping to create some great spaces at Larchfield Community, they’ve also had the opportunity to work and interact with other Barclaycard employees who they wouldn’t normally come across in their day-to-day role.

Huge thanks to all of the volunteers from Barclaycard Stockton-On-Tees.

“I’ve been coming to Larchfield to volunteer since 2019 and I love it. Am really grateful Barclaycard and Barclays create these opportunities for staff to help our local community. We can see the difference we make and I love being around the community at Larchfield.”

Mark Probert, Business Readiness Manager, Barclays
