Business Volunteering Scheme

Would your business like to volunteer for Heart of BS13?

As well as providing much-needed support to a not for profit organisation working to improve health, wellbeing, and environmental sustainability in one of the most deprived communities in Bristol, volunteering will benefit your business and your team. Our Business Volunteering Scheme offers fun, rewarding, memorable, team-building days for your staff, creates opportunities for positive publicity, and can be designed to fit into your CSR / B-corp strategy.

 

What would you do?

Throughout the year, we have various projects on our outdoor sites that require team-work, effort and motivation from groups of enthusiastic people. Your particular task will depend on when you volunteer with us, how many people there are in your team, any accessibility requirements, and your budget. Some projects take place at certain times of year, so if there is something you are particularly interested in, please let us know so that we can book your team in. Projects include: 

  • Tree planting 
  • Building a conservation area 
  • Building a pizza oven
  • Gardening – landscaping, pricking out and planting, weeding and composting 
  • Harvesting fruit and vegetables, and clearing and mulching vegetable beds 

Costs

So that we don’t divert funds from our work with the BS13 community, we charge a fee of £35 per person per day (minimum of 10 people) for business volunteers. This covers our staffing, equipment and materials costs for the project you will undertake, and includes a wonderful lunch made by the chefs at our sister project, The Real Meal Store.

However, if funding is a barrier to your team taking part, please get in contact to discuss your budget. 

Covid Safety

We follow Covid-19 safety precautions at our sites in order to maintain everyone’s comfort and safety. Work will take place outdoors or people will be well spaced out in poly tunnels.
