During this year’s Volunteers Week, over 65 people from Leeds Building Society were involved in volunteering projects. 

To date the Society’s volunteering programme has offered employees seven hours of paid leave each year to spend in their communities.

In 2017, 50% of staff took up the opportunity to support their local communities, investing 4,700 hours in more than 160 projects up and down the UK.

Now the mutual has doubled that to 14 hours a year, to help staff support its national partnerships with Samaritans and Parkrun
