Santander in the Community

CCWorks have been working with Santander since 2010 supporting a key sustainability pillar; ‘Creating a thriving workplace’. We do this by running their flagship national employee volunteering programme ‘Discovery Days’; sourcing and managing over 600 volunteering days in 2019 alone. We also manage their ‘Deck the Halls’ Christmas volunteering programme.

Across both programmes we supported over 6000 Santander colleagues to volunteer in their local community during 2019. Not only do we source and manage the activity, we also evaluate the impact, recommend improvements and ensure health and safety is taken care of, enabling the community affairs team to concentrate on developing the programme for the future.

Sainsbury's Employee Volunteering Programme

Sainsbury's launched a new volunteering programme to celebrate their 150th anniversary. The aim of the programme was to engage Sainsbury's colleagues throughout the business in voluntary activities. CCWorks sourced a variety of opportunities nationwide for the volunteering portal to enable stores to search for and undertake projects throughout the initial campaign and keep the database refreshed on a regular basis.

Tesco Volunteering Pilot

Tesco asked us to create and manage a one-year pilot volunteering programme for store staff, including sourcing of five national charity partners, oversight and management of the charity partners, creation of processes and procedures to support the pilot, a helpline for staff and reporting and analysis of the pilot for Tesco's community affairs team.
