Does your business take Corporate Social Responsibility seriously?

Do you, or have you considered supporting your employees to volunteer during work time each year, developing useful experience and skills along the way, not to mention great PR for doing the right thing?

SafeWise, the charity running ‘skills for life’ learning villages in Weymouth and Bournemouth, is seeking support in promoting its primary school programme. They are specifically asking local business with expertise in customer relations via telephone to consider nominating staff for the opportunity to support in this way.

SafeWise Chief Executive Rob Hattersley said: ‘We know from teacher feedback that schools love our revamped primary school programme, and we get a lot of repeat bookings as a result. However it is harder to reach schools who haven’t been to us before. We’re therefore seeking support from employees with great communication skills to phone schools to follow up our printed materials, and secure bookings.

We have a script and a system – all we need are willing volunteers! We’d be very happy to discuss promotional opportunities with new partners helping us in this way.’ If your business might be able to help, please get in touch by emailing
