What is the difference between a volunteering project and a volunteering

Updated over a week ago

Volunteering Project

Your volunteering project is your opportunity to tell us about your organisation or the part of your organisation that your volunteering opportunities are connected to.

Your organisation might be part of a wider network with volunteering opportunities at specific locations, that are located near to a UK Aviva office or digital based. Your volunteering project would be focused on information about your organisation, who you are and what you do.

If accepted you’ll be able to bring your volunteering page to life adding the story of who your organisation is through written text and pictures to add colour and personality to your page and attract Aviva employees. But to start we only need a few details from you.

Volunteering Opportunity

Volunteering opportunities are specific to your organisation that you need support with. There is no limit to the number of volunteering opportunities you can add - although remember you do have to manage them and keep the information up to date.

We’d recommend having different volunteering opportunities for different tasks e.g. You may want someone with financial experience to help you with the books for the quarter (one opportunity) and someone else to provide training on using social media (another opportunity).

If you have an ongoing opportunity such as tree planting over a period of time e.g weekly during January and February, you’ll need to add these as individual opportunities. This enables employees to sign up to the specific week they can volunteer and you’ll be able to keep track of how many people to expect. If you need some support running a money management course every Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon for 6 weeks you’d add this as one opportunity so the employee is aware of the hours they’ll need to commit too.

How to apply

The first step is to complete a quick application form and tell us a few details about your organisation, answer some questions about your organisation and what Health & Safety checks you have in place.

Submit for approval

Once you’ve completed the application form you’ll be able to submit for approval. You’ll be notified by email within X days on the outcome of your volunteering application.

Volunteering Opportunity

Once approved* it’s now time to build your volunteering page (who you are, what you do) and start adding your volunteering opportunities to attract employees.
