What is skills-based volunteering?

  • Skills-based volunteering is harnessing the skills and enthusiasm of your employees to provide valuable services to charities and social enterprises.
  • We as humans are hardwired to help. Volunteering with charities and social enterprises can make a positive impact in our society. It is also incredibly rewarding and creates a sense of purpose – read more about helper’s high.

What help does a charity or social enterprise actually need?

  • ​​50% of the offers that charities receive are for unskilled team volunteering days (painting fences, gardening etc.)
  • Yet only 29% of charities need this. What charities are crying out for is pro bono support, skills sharing/training, and fundraising
  • ​​40% of charities do not benefit from one off / one day voluntary
  • Over 40% of charities ranked unskilled time as the least important resource they get
