At this crucial time, Volunteering Matters have issued a call to businesses who want to support charities through volunteering their skills, services and logistical support.
“We know how much the charity and voluntary sector has already done in response to the COVID-19, and how much will continue to be required in the coming weeks and months. So we’ve launched this appeal on behalf of sector.”
Volunteering Matters can help connect your charity with the businesses who have come forward to support charities with their skills and expertise.
So far skills and support offered from businesses include:
- Business planning
- Project management
- IT expertise– to help create online collaboration platforms or support for those working from home
- Logistics, such as vehicle supply
- Press and media support
- Legal advice wanting to help
