What is a Difference Day?
Create a unique day to build relationships amongst your company’s team whilst giving them the opportunity to give back to the community. This could be painting a nursing home or building a playground, running a funfair for children with special needs or planting a sensory garden, whatever it is, it will be a memorable, fun-filled bonding experience for your team.
A Difference Day delivers an enormous sense of achievement, making a real difference to the lives of everyone involved. This is no ordinary team building day.
How does it work?
- We arrange everything, transport, food, materials and any specialist equipment, ensuring the day runs seamlessly… all you have to do is turn up!
- We arrange the teams, allocate the activities, materials and all of the protective clothing. Professional trades-people are always on hand to give instruction. You might even learn a new skill!
- We create the opportunity for your team to work with their colleagues, building stronger relationships in a unique setting, with a common goal. In some instances they will work directly with and get to know the beneficiaries.
A team building day with a difference
Difference Days was born in response to a client’s request in 2009. Having previously managed many successful ‘traditional’ events (off road driving, clay pigeon shooting, treasure hunts, etc) for them, they challenged us to arrange a ‘better/different’ staff team building day.
We were aware of a local residential home, for people with intellectual disabilities that was in urgent need of refurbishment and realised that if we got their team involved, we could create something wonderful. We developed the idea that our client’s team would come and work for the day, supported by us supplying materials and professional guidance.
That day first day was a huge success with everyone involved walking away feeling rightly proud of what they had achieved.
The rest is history, since then Difference Days have managed over 100 Difference Days, creating magic where it is needed, on behalf of clients throughout Ireland.
