Falcon Support Services enjoyed hosting team building volunteer days for the week. It was a real pleasure to have Thermo Fisher Scientific within the Falcon Centre, volunteering at the Drop In serving tea’s and coffees to rough sleepers, taking part in rejuvenating the garden and sorting and ordering donations. They experienced a Muto workshop and got involved with the service users of the centre with the opportunity to hear about their lives and the difference the service makes to them.

"My experience at the Falcon Centre was heart-warming to the hilt." Jac

   
More and more companies, big and small, are now seeing the benefits of team volunteering challenges in their local community. Connecting with a local community-based organisation can provide both employers and teams with many benefits:
  • Great value for money
  • An outstanding sense of achievement for all who take part
  • A real team building experience, impossible to replicate in the training room
  • Delivery of your corporate social responsibility policy objectives

A You Gov survey published in 2010 shows that managers who supported employee volunteering saw a 55% improvement in their employee retention.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my volunteering experience at The Falcon Centre. It was great to have the opportunity to be involved with such a valuable, local charity and I gained a real insight into how ‘The Drop-In’ works. I didn’t know this place even existed and I’ve lived in the Loughborough area all my life. Everyone we met and worked with on the day were lovely and made us feel really welcome. If you ever get the opportunity to volunteer at The Falcon Centre, you should support this fantastic charity. It made me realise that one day, I, or someone close to me might need the help that they offer and they can only continue doing this with support from people like you and me." Emma

If you are interested in finding out more about the opportunities to volunteer with us please Contact us. We ask that in return you hold a fundraising event or collection of donations as a contribution to the charity’s work.
