Skilled Volunteering

Businesses of all sizes and their employees have a wealth of valuable skills that can be shared with charities and other non-profit organisations that can help them deliver their mission and support their beneficiaries.  Skills ranging from problem solving and project management to helping with employability to the more ‘professional’ such as marketing and IT.  Whether improving the comms of a local charity, enhancing their social enterprise model or helping them to evaluate their impact, you can make a real difference in small and big ways that can have lasting effect.

And it isn’t just a one way street either!  Exchanging skills is good for business and the volunteers can gain personal and professional development and a deep sense of fulfilment in sharing their skills for good.
