We know Covid-19 is hitting the charity sector particularly hard, which is why at Volunteering Matters we’re using our employee volunteering brokerage expertise to connect businesses wanting to volunteer their time and talents with charities that need a little professional support as they adapt at pace. We call it #CharityConnect.

The response has been overwhelming – below are five brilliant offers available right now. If you’d like us to connect you with one of them, please register your details here and quote the reference number in the free text box (question 6) of our short form.

  • Are you struggling to keep all of your wider stakeholders informed of your plans as you change your business and delivery models? We have a freelance Project Manager and Change Management specialist with a background in corporate partnerships and stakeholder engagement. He’s London based-but can work remotely with anyone. (Quote ref: 7)
  • If you’re in the health and social care sector and need legal advice, particularly around the regulatory environment or in HR, we have a Barrister with their own chambers ready to help you. (Quote re: 14)
  • If you’re a senior leader needing some personal support as you rethink your operation, we have a business coach with great start-up and scaling experience looking to help your organisation adapt. (Quote ref: 18)
  • If you have a telephone befriending operation with the ability to train and induct new volunteers, we know of a team of 17 caseworkers based in Scotland who’d love to get involved. (Quote ref: 28)
  • And finally, I bet you never thought you needed specialist procurement advice. You don’t really buy anything, right? Wrong! If you have support needs around contract management or negotiation, pricing, supply chain issues, equipment purchasing or related logistics, we have some great specialists who’d love to help you. Some of them come fresh from senior procurement roles in national charities, so will really get you and the challenges you’re facing. (Quote ref: 173).
