Workplace Events

If you're already a Capability Scotland supporter, don't forget there are lots of ways your company, or employer, can support us too. There are lots of different events that you can get involved in with your colleagues.

We have experience of running a range of different events for a variety of companies.

There's always something going on and if your company has a matched giving policy, they'll even help with your fundraising, giving you £1 for every £1 you raise yourself!  From Auctions to Zumba parties and everything in between, we'll give you all the support you need.

If you have a corporate social giving day at your work you may be interseted in participating in one of our events below. If none of our organised events take your fancy, why not organise your own?

Corporate Volunteer Days

We have a range of rewarding practical volunteering opportunities to work together as team and offer your time and skills to make a difference to the lives of disabled people who use our services across Scotland. These opportunities will vary throughout the year - previous corporate volunteers have undertaken activities such as painting and decorating indoor and outdoor areas, building essential furniture and rescuing overgrown gardens.

"At Capability Scotland we offer a range fundraising opportunities, events and volunteering experiences for companies to be involved in. We work with companies to ensure we build long term, mutually beneficial partnerships that will not only engage staff, build morale and team spirit but will also strengthen the company brand and reputation by being involved with a charity that makes a real difference in local communities across Scotland."
Gemma Gilliland, PartnershipsManager

Battleshops

If your organisation is looking for a more competitive volunteering opportunity, why not take part in Capability Scotland's unique Battleshops Challenge.

Teams of four or five people are challenged to raise as much money as they can over a set period of time and to generate stock before spending a day in a Capability Scotland shop. The money raised, together with the value of stock donated, will be added to the shop's takings for the day - and the team with the highest total wins! Teams can go head to head and put their entrepreneurial, marketing and sales skills to the test, competing against each other to see who can gain the greatest increase in sales, footfall and local awareness.

We currently have shops in Edinburgh, Falkirk, Perth and Glasgow that can host an apprentice challenge so please get in touch if you'd like to sign up!

Employability skill sharing

We are always interested to hear from companies who may be able to offer placements and we will ensure you are supported throughout the process. Additionally if your organisation can offer workshops in writing CVs, interview techniques, writing personal statements or other practical skills or could offer a mentoring service in a volunteer capacity, we would love to discuss this further.

If you're not looking for an event or want to find out otherways that you can get involved take a look here.
