Together we can make a difference #givingback

Last week, was National Volunteering Week and we thanked colleagues who have already been volunteering and making valuable contributions to the communities we proudly live and work in. If you missed it, we gave out some advice on how you can volunteer at Mitie.

Are you looking for inspiration on how to volunteer?

  • Education & Employers – Start inspiring young people through our charity partner Education and Employers. The process is simple, just register on their website. You’ll then receive invitations from schools or you can search for events taking place with schools near you. Find out more by watching our lunch & learn, recently hosted by the charity.
  • Macmillan – Join the colleagues already volunteering and fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support. This hard-hitting short video shows the great work Macmillan do. Click here to find out more about the volunteering opportunities available with them and it’s not too early to start planning your Macmillan coffee morning for 24 September!
  • Radical Recruit – Join the revolution and sign up to support under-represented people in gaining sustainable employment. Find out more and apply to be a Radical volunteer.
  • Organise your own event– Set up your own team building event and give back at the same time. Visit Keeping Britain Tidy to see what the team at March McLennan got up to.  You can also find a guide here.
  • British Heart Foundation – This year is the British Heart Foundation is 60! Why not take on a team physical challenge to commemorate their 60 birthday and raise funds for the charity while having fun! Click here for ideas. The money you raise will support lifesaving heart and circulatory research, keeping more hearts beating to help families stay together for longer. 
  • Abbeywood Community School –  If you live in Bristol sign up and support year 10 students by delivering mock interviews on 14 July, 8:45 am – 1 pm. Please register your interest here.​​​​​​​
