Employee Action Days

You are here

Employee Action Days give your team the opportunity to carry out practical conservation and environmental work to improve green spaces in the Yorkshire community. This programme of activity connects your team with the community you work in, and is perfect way to build team dynamics and staff morale.

We have a number of locations in which you can bring your staff together for a day out.

Leeds - Hollybush

They work with hundreds of people each year to look after their own green places whilst benefiting their emotional, physical and social well-being. Your team can join us on a range of projects benefiting the Leeds environment and communities, including tree planting, creating footpaths and developing school wildlife gardens.

What it costs

To ensure the financial sustainability of all our activities, we have to recover the costs of delivering any event. This means that we are able to continue our other great work with people and communities, transforming their health, prospects and outdoor places for the long term. These costs include:

  •     Trained staff and volunteer officers to lead your day - great care is taken to ensure that your team members have a safe, inclusive and enjoyable experience
  •     Project planning and set-up costs
  •     Full risk assessment and insurance
  •     Provision of tools and safety equipment

Please contact the staff above to discuss costs - it may be possible to negotiate on these if your company can provide skilled construction or engineering staff for instance or support the project in other ways such as providing materials. With enough notice we can also look to raise funds from other sources to bring a project together!
