To help engage committed workplace giving donors, we have developed unique volunteering opportunities designed to have the most impact within your workplace.
Volunteering for Beyond Blue is a great way to encourage conversations about mental health in the community, reduce the stigma and help reduce the impact of anxiety and depression.
Workplace giving volunteers champion mental health and Beyond Blue by influencing their own personal workplace networks through staff led events that create a greater ongoing impact on the wellbeing of their community. Staff can volunteer their time to organise workplace events or fundraisers that shine a spotlight on mental health and Beyond Blue.
If you or your staff are interested in becoming a WPG Volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and check out our fundraising terms and conditions.
We would love for our staff to volunteer at Beyond Blue events in the community. Is this possible?
Beyond Blue is incredibly lucky to have an engaged volunteer base of over 5000 members. Unfortunately, while we volunteer at many community events throughout the year, these positions fill up quickly and we often have a long waitlist.
Instead, your staff can volunteer by creating your own fundraising or mental health initiative. Creating your own event means you can choose what you want to do, hold it at a time that suits you and your staff, and see the direct impact it has on your personal and professional networks.
The best way to help us reduce the stigma and raise awareness for mental health is to spread this message to those around you. If you would like to, you are more than welcome to include your local community in your event and use this as an opportunity to reach out and engage the wider community.
We already have a wellbeing committee who run initiatives throughout the workplace, how can staff get involved?
In this case, we recommend opening volunteering opportunities for staff to organise or assist with one-off events where you might require extra support. This can be a great way to engage staff with your wellbeing committee, and raise awareness of workplace mental health more broadly, through fundraisers or special events. By utilising your staff as volunteers, you are creating opportunities to break down silos within your workplace and promote greater cross-organisational collaboration through wellbeing initiatives.
