What is ESV?

Employer Supported Volunteering (ESV) provides employees with the opportunity to volunteer with support from their employer. This may be in the form of time off for individual volunteering, team challenge events or an ongoing arrangement with a community partner. ESV provides real benefits to the employer, the volunteers and community organisations they support. By helping tackle local issues, employers can benefit both themselves and the communities in which they operate.
