Team Challenges

Employees have a variety of opportunities to volunteer together, both with and for local community and voluntary organisations.

We work in partnership with over 50 organisations who rely on the practical support of volunteers to help make their grounds and buildings look their best.

Team Challenges are a fantastic way of giving something back to your local community, whilst providing motivational, team-building opportunities for your employees.

Community Challenges: transform community buildings and urban green spaces on a one-off project. Half and full day opportunities run all year round for our full members. For more information, please read our Challenges Case Study.

Big Community Challenge: volunteer alongside other local businesses to makeover a local community space in just three days. To find out more about everything the Big Community Challenge involves, have a look at our new 2018 Case Study.

Team Challenge Week: week of ‘Turn up and do’ tasters activities hosted by a cross-section of community partners. The opportunity to join in with these activities is open to all York Cares members. To read about everything we got up to in Team Challenge Week 2017, click here.

York Cares at Christmas: collect gifts and essential items for those in need across the city. The opportunity to join in with these activities is open to all York Cares members.
