What We Provide For You

What We Do

Online Volunteering Services (OVS) aggregates and curates a wide range of quality online volunteering opportunities. They range from short 10 minute to longer ongoing commitments that help support charities, education, communities, environment, research scientists, museums and galleries.  OVS provides individual quality volunteering opportunities for businesses to offer to their employees.  It provides activities that can be done from a desk and gives charities and other beneficiaries access to volunteers.  It is simple and easy to use and allows employees and businesses access to dashboards to view usage and export for CSR reporting and company messaging.  Opportunities are being researched all the time, so new activities will become available and others paused or archived.  The platform has a feedback and suggestions section where users can send information on volunteering activities they would like to include and also to let us know how they are finding the experience.  We can also help companies develop and build their own volunteering opportunities, for example, a programme to support a charity of the year.

WHAT WE OFFER
The Volunteering Business Case

The business case for volunteering is well documented with evidence on good returns on the investment.  Key benefits include improved colleague morale and motivation, improved retention, better recruitment, reduced sickness and absenteeism and improved perception of the employer.  In many cases a strong volunteering or corporate citizenship ethos provides a competitive edge in a tendering process.  The value to the community is also well documented.
