#VolunteeringMatters at DCMS

Category: Employer Focus

Did you know that DCMS offers all staff the opportunity to take a minimum of 3 days special leave each year to undertake volunteering activities should they wish to?

The UK is a very generous place, with a long and proud tradition of social action, and levels of volunteering and giving have increased. The Community Life Survey 2016-2017 shows that around a fifth (22%) of adults said they had taken part in formal volunteering at least once a month and nearly two thirds of adults (63%) had engaged in some form of volunteering at least once a year.

People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons; physical, mental, emotional, social and professional, to mention a few. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.

Some of our own DCMS staff already volunteer in their spare time.
