Be The Difference

Our employee volunteering programme supports each of our 20,000 employees to Be the difference for a community project of their choice by taking a day away from their usual job and give a helping hand.

As a large utility company our skills base is wide and we are able to offer support from across our business. Through volunteering, our employees, individually or in teams work on projects ranging from DIY, Gardening, Administrative tasks as well as supporting third sector organisations to deliver school talks or provide IT support.

SSE is proud to support charities, organisations and schools, giving our time and skills to help our local communities. If you are not-for-profit organisation or group and could use SSE volunteers for a specific project that can be completed in a day or so contact us to see how we can Be the difference for you.
