Reach Volunteering is the leading skills-based volunteering charity and the UK’s single biggest source of trustees for the voluntary sector.
Our vision is to create a world where people come together to create a thriving, fair and sustainable society.
We inspire, support and connect civil society organisations and volunteers to work together, sharing skills and expertise to create a better society.
How we do it
We connect people to make change. Through our online platform, people volunteer to share their professional skills with good causes while charities and not-for-profits find volunteers and trustees with the expertise to help them thrive.
From HR to digital, to finance and marketing, opportunities include a range of different areas, short-term projects and ongoing operational roles. Find out more about how our service works.
- Offer bespoke recruitment for trustees through TrusteeWorks, our executive search service.
- Promote good practice so that volunteers and good causes can make the most of skills-based volunteering and get guidance on related topics such as trustee recruitment.
- Work with our partners to run workshops and webinars, and produce useful resources such as the Trustee Recruitment Cycle.
Why we do it
Civil society organisations tackle some of the most important and complex issues facing society. We believe that they should be able to access the expertise that they need to thrive and connect them to people who bring skills and diversity to their boards, deliver projects and bolster core operations.
People want to volunteer their expertise. When people volunteer for a cause they care about, it increase their sense of well-being, connection to others and wider purpose. They make a unique contribution to society that transforms them, builds the capacity and capability of a good cause and encourages further social action.
At Reach, we practise what we preach. Our small staff team is supported by our amazing volunteers who contribute their skills to our ongoing running and success. Find out more about our team.
