LEAP: Employee volunteering programme

Access volunteers to support your organisation

Members of the LEAP employee volunteering programme outside Spitalfields City Farm

LEAP is our employee volunteering programme, run by our trustee, the City of London Corporation. We appreciate the incredible commitment of voluntary organisations in supporting communities across London, and in return give our employees up to 14 hours of special paid leave each year to volunteer in support of good causes.

London charities and community organisations can access these volunteers’ expertise and enthusiasm via the LEAP volunteering programme: you’ll be asked to list your requirements and be matched with a volunteer whose skills match your needs. Support can be in person or virtually.

Involving Corporate Volunteers in the work of Forget-Me-Not has really benefited our work. It raises understanding and support for what we do, and directly benefits our clients — who received some beautiful memory boxes. It benefitted the volunteers too – I saw them visibly relax into the session as we crafted together!
