Skelton is supported by National Grid
The Conservation Volunteers have considerable experience in delivering successful employee action days, and can offer a range of practical opportunities for teams of 6 - 40 people. These opportunities can make a real difference to a local community project, as well as supporting your Corporate Social Responsibility objectives and providing networking opportunities for staff.
Your team can carry out valuable work to support the development of the site at Skelton Grange, a valuable urban reserve for wildlife and an exciting and varied green space for children and other visitors to the site.
You will work alongside trained leaders from our experienced site management team. They will support your team through the work, providing training and guidance, and explaining the long term value and context of the work in our wider site management plan. Our leaders will always aim to provide a fun and enjoyable work site, within a framework of safety, with a range of tasks available to suit differing levels of ability and practical experience.
We are based on a site in South Leeds, just 2 miles from Leeds City Centre and with excellent transport links to the M1 and M62. Most tasks take place in our wildlife and education area, although teams have also carried out painting and display work within our sustainable environmental centre building as well.
Recent tasks that teams have carried out include:
It is possible to arrange a two-part event, combining a part day’s practical work with a meeting housed within our award winning sustainable building. Please contact us for more information on this option.
We are also able to offer more unusual events that can support team building and networking opportunities based within our wildlife area. We can run training in bushcraft skills such as fire lighting, outdoor cooking or green woodwork. Our experience is that campfire based activities such as these provide stimulation, creativity, lots of opportunities for communication and reflection – and they are also lots of fun!
The Conservation Volunteers operate all around the country, so if you are looking for an opportunity elsewhere in West Yorkshire, or even further afield, we should be able to help! Please contact the Corporate Partnerships Team on 01302 388 837 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
Our standard Employee Action Days can be run for your team at a cost of £50 per person. This includes all leadership, training, support, and safety equipment for the day, as well as hot drinks and biscuits to keep people going on the day! Lunch can also be provided for an additional £10 per person.
Please contact us for current tasks and opportunities on the site. We can be flexible in our event planning to accommodate the needs of your team – please get in touch if you would like to discuss these options.
We are experienced in working with a diverse range of organisations, in the private, Government and third sectors, and will assist with planning and logistics to ensure that your team have a fun and rewarding day.
