Microvolunteering: Evidence of Impact

Participation in microvolunteering creates impact in the wider world out there. For actions that in of itself would seem as though they are not contributing anything worthwhile, you’d be surprised what they’re actually achieving.

We have compiled a widely read report into this subject ‘Microvolunteering: Evidence of Impact’. See if it don’t raise your eyebrows!!

Case Studies
Volunteering Works - Microvolunteering actions from HFH were included in vInspired’s now defunct Volunteering Works employee volunteering platform.
Whitbread – promotes HFH as part of it’s responsible citizenship programme, called ‘Good Together’
Dept of Work & Pensions Carers Allowance – included microvolunteering on it’s intranet site to enable its’ employees to do good from their desks

The Last Word

Help From Work is a subsidiary project of the Help From Home initiative. It’s sole aim is to encourage and inspire office workers to discover that they can volunteer their time for the benefit of others without leaving their workplace. This will hopefully instil a sense of altruism and may lead to participation in more traditional volunteering activities.
