Value You is a bridge between the voluntary and business sector.
Getting involved with this scheme means you’re actually rewarding dedicated volunteers for their time and supporting independent businesses to thrive, all at the same time. Sounds awesome, right?
Originally launched in London in 2014, Value You came to Walsall in August 2019 and, at the time of this post, already has over 50 businesses signed up. The incentive? Guaranteed customers who choose to spend money in their shops, utilising the Value You discount made available to them. The free promotion on the official Value You website, which will no doubt drive online traffic to the business’ websites.
Value You for business
Pledge your support by offering a 10,15 or 20 % discount for eligible volunteers. This information is then transferred to the Value You website for advertisement, along with your business address and contact details. You are welcome to advertise your involvement with Value You, whether you direct people from your website or social media, or have a sign on your business premises. Then, when a volunteer approaches you with the Value You card, you honour the agreement by giving them a discount on products/services.
Value you for volunteers
If you’ve volunteered for 100 hours in Walsall in the last 12 month, you are eligible for the scheme and can sign up to receive a Value You card.
Receive discounts from local businesses who are signed up to the scheme, from hairdressers to restaurants and more.
It’s free to sign up. The only thing Value You asks is proof of your volunteering.
