Connecting good people to great causes

We’re driving a culture shift in the world of volunteering.  As more people strive to have purposeful careers and a positive impact, by connecting the skills and talents of volunteers with organisations in civil society, we’re helping to bring down the walls between the charity, corporate and public sectors. 
 

What our volunteers say

“I learnt an enormous amount about the organisation and the NGO sector, as well as having great fun, and left them with a piece of work that they really appreciated. I would thoroughly recommend this concept to others and will hope to do more myself in the future.” 

William, skilled volunteer with a children's charity

“In my experience you will get at least as much out of being a Trustee as you contribute. To have an opportunity to operate at Board level, get engaged in a completely different type of organisation and interact with hugely talented and committed people is a tremendous privilege.”

Anne, Trustee of an environmental charity

“The experience of working with a charity which does so much with so few resources was completely inspirational.  I really had to think outside the box to apply my knowledge in this context and ensure that the project was a success.  As well as being immensely rewarding, it’s helped me to employ this type of creativity within my day job.”  

Richard, skilled volunteer with a health charity
