Supporting employee volunteering - Volunteers in Schools

The Trust's 'Volunteers in Schools' scheme aims to support members of staff who are regularly involved as representatives on either a school's governing body, or Parent Teacher Association. WHSmith employees can apply for a grant if they work for any part of WHSmith in the UK on a permanent contract, and regularly volunteer for a minimum of 4 hours per month in the activities of a local school.

There are two fixed level grants:

  • £250 - for employees involved in a support group (ie PTA, League of Friends) or general fundraising
  • £500 - for employees involved in the management of the school (ie governor, treasurer etc.)
