With 9,500 employees around the country, the people of FCTG have an incredible range of skills that can be a huge help to charities and community organisations. Each employee has the opportunity to take a day's paid volunteer leave each year to help lend a helping hand to one of the Foundation's partner charities, or an organisation of the individual's choice.
Volunteering can be done in a single day, or broken up over time to allow a regular commitment of skills or project work e.g. doing the accounts monthly for a local charity, working on web development project for a start-up social enterprise. Team volunteer activities are also regularly included at FCTG conferences, meetings and planning days across the country.
To facilitate FCTG's people volunteering the Foundation as partnered with Goodcompany, a non-profit initiative that matches those with talent and time to organisations in need of assistance.
