Get out of the office and give back to the community, and to the environment. Spend a day volunteering with your colleagues in your local park. It’s a great way for your business to meet its corporate sustainability values.

How does it work?

Tell us about your group using the volunteer enquiry form. We’ll do our best to find a match to suit your needs.

What you need to know

Council staff will in most cases supervise the activity and will provide health and safety information. They can provide some equipment (e.g. tools) and materials for the activity (e.g. plants, mulch).

The company’s coordinator must ensure everyone follows safe practice. All staff must read the volunteer guidelines beforehand.

Not all parks suit group projects and opportunities depend on staff capacity and management priorities.

What you need to bring

Bring warm clothes, raincoat, hat, sturdy boots, food, and drinks. If you have equipment needed for the activity (e.g. spade) bring this with you.
