Corporate partnerships

Putting your organisation into the heart of communities

For over 15 years, TCV has been working successfully with organisations and their employees to transform local communities and green spaces.

In 2019 we facilitated Community Engagement Days for over 8,000 employees with activities as diverse as land management, creating ponds, sowing wildflower meadows, planting trees and constructing foot paths. Working together as one team, your employees can help transform, protect and care for community green spaces for everyone to enjoy.

As experts in outdoor community engagement activities, TCV have developed a range of Corporate Partnership Programmes which can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your company, your employees and your stakeholders.

It was a great day and the fact that I got to liaise with others who I wouldn’t usually get the chance to speak to across our office was brilliant. I felt great about what we did to start off a woodland seating area for the kids, and I think we made a great team by the end of it all.

Community Engagement Days

Community Engagement Days give your employees the chance to carry out practical and guided conservation work – improving green spaces for local communities to enjoy.

OVO was looking for a national conservation partner with local reach. We chose TCV based on their fantastic network of partners and ability to activate and work with volunteers across the UK. In creating I Dig Trees with TCV, I have been consistently impressed with how flexible and pragmatic they have been as a partner. I can’t recommend them enough!
