Develop your staff’s team building and communication skills through corporate volunteering. Have fun and make a real difference to our magnificent buildings, woodlands and riverbanks.


A win-win opportunity

Corporate volunteering could benefit your business by:

  • Boosting employee morale and motivation
  • Promoting employee retention
  • Offering an opportunity for team building
  • Contributing to professional and personal development
  • Meeting your Social Responsibility programme

Matching your skills to our needs

We can match the skills of your employees to the needs of the Cathedral. Larger group activities can include conservation volunteering on the woodlands and riverbanks and fundraising.

We also need help in specialist areas such as IT. Please get in contact to discuss further.

Making a difference

We are extremely grateful to all our Corporate Partners for their support. As one of the North East’s most visited buildings, the Cathedral has a significant role to play in the regional economy.

We aspire to work with businesses from the area and beyond to build on the Cathedral’s positive contribution to tourism, employment and community.

“Our Forest School is a lovely area of the riverbanks for teaching children about their natural environment.

We are very grateful to the staff from Northumbrian Water for helping clear the undergrowth there, making it an even more enjoyable place.”
