Corporate Volunteering & Community Projects

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a business model that helps a company be socially accountable — to itself, its stakeholders, and the public.

Many businesses offer their employees time and experience for one or two days per year, or sometimes more frequently.

At BVA, we are fortunate to have a number of local businesses of all sizes keen to assist with projects, events and charitable activities across Basingstoke & Deane and we want to create effective partnerships between willing teams and charities or groups seeking short term or one off support.

As well as funding and practical support through volunteering, many charities and community groups often require physical resources, storage and material support. See our new section ‘Community Resources‘ Details coming soon.

Teams Seeking Projects: Each team has been allocated a unique reference number (URN) as seen below so if you see a team which matches your requirements email: and we will be delighted to put you in touch.

Support Requested: Charities and event organisers, please outline your requirements for help by filling in this form.

If you are a business offering people or resources, please give details on this form. Alternatively contact Natascha as above or ring us on 01256 423816.

Please note we will be adding case studies showcasing successful partnerships as this page evolves.
