Benefits of volunteering

Corporate Volunteering

Volunteer Centre Tower Hamlets organises fun, practical, challenging employee volunteering days. We work in partnership with a number of charities in Tower Hamlets to offer a range of team volunteering activities for you and your colleagues. If you have a group of employees who want to volunteer together as a group, please get in touch with your requirements. We will aim to match you with a local charity to provide a rewarding and impactful group volunteering day.

VCTH can cater for small or large groups, and activities can be indoors or outdoors. We charge modest fees to organise team volunteering events. These fees cover the costs of sourcing a suitable opportunity, risk assessing the project, and providing experienced staff to supervise your team on the day. Prices currently start from £750 per team (for up to 10 people), with additional charges for larger teams and to cover the costs of materials as needed. To discuss your requirements, please email [email protected] or call us 07595 219603.

Tower Hamlets Volunteering Case Studies

Volunteering case study


"I have been volunteering before and during Covid and can honestly say that volunteering has changed my life. It honed in the principles my parents brought me up with, that the most important things in life are not things".

Park volunteering during covid


"I wanted to be able to support those whose lives were changing because of the pandemic. I signed up to receive volunteering alerts in Tower Hamlets and signed up to pretty much everything I could".

Stories or volunteering during the pandemic

Md Mizanoor

"I have volunteered for many years. I found it hard to see people dying during the covid-19 outbreak. As a human being I do volunteer to keep the society safe and improve my physical and mental health".

Volunteer delivering food


"I want to help people who are worst affected by the pandemic. I hate to think there are people who feel totally alone and uncertain. When lockdown started I joined a number of local volunteering schemes.".
