Our work is made possible by the enthusiasm and commitment of our volunteers and business partners. The dedication of the organisations that work with us is the cornerstone of our impact.

Ablaze wants you to join our community and be a part of our mission to tackle inequality of opportunity for young people in the West of England by utilising your staff’s skills.

Our approach is simple:

  1. We assess your current CSR activity against your CSR priorities
  2. We recommend the interventions we think will suit your business best
  3. We match you with a school
  4. We provide recruitment support, training and safeguarding procedures for your volunteers
  5. We broker and manage your relationship from start to finish
  6. We measure the impact of your volunteering and report it back to you

“Ablaze is a preferred partner for Airbus. We value the expertise and experience they bring to all their work – we know we are in safe hands and our desire to impact positively on our local community will be met.”

If your priority is to work with Primary schools your staff can volunteer as a reading buddy or a number partner. In addition, we are always on the look out for individuals who have a great story to tell or an inspirational take on life to do one off visits to schools.

If your firm wants to focus on working with Secondary schools we have a range of programmes and one off interventions staff can get involved in. These range from group mentoring, mock interviews, career events, one off talks and visits.

We will guide you through the volunteering process and ensure that staff who participate have the best possible experience. We understand the importance of the reciprocal benefits of CSR activity to companies and we are keen to make sure that your business sees those benefits realised.

We can help you to make the most impact whilst also getting the best return on your investment.
