East End Community Foundation help match volunteers from businesses with local charities through our volunteer brokerage scheme.

Great for businesses, great for the community

Research shows that volunteering is great for businesses, helping to develop staff skills, encourage teamwork and improve employee satisfaction. If you want to encourage your employees to develop their skills, work as a team and give back to the community through volunteering, join EECF as a business member. 

Membership+ members have unlimited access to our Volunteer Brokerage service and can participate in a range of engaging activities. EECF will match staff volunteers from your business with local charities through our volunteer brokerage scheme.

The community groups EECF fund in Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Newham rely on volunteers to support them with their day-to-day activities or specific projects. Through EECF, the groups offer a variety of opportunities to our business members and donors throughout the year, ranging from gardening and painting at community centres to offering specialist skills support through careers workshops and mentoring. 

Contact EECF’s Development Director Chantell Mills Callard for more information about how to become a business member.

If you are a local community group and would like volunteers to help support your project, contact EECF’s Community Engagement Manager Tracey Primus.

“The goal was to help our young people build confidence, share interview tips and techniques and take part in a one to one mock interview with real life employers. All of the young people we supported have significant barriers in their lives which are preventing them from gaining or sustaining employment. What stood out the most for me was the ability of our young people to work as a part of a team and complete the tasks given”
