Volunteer Support

Reach Volunteering supports charities throughout the UK to recruit trustees and skilled volunteers who have professional expertise, to join their boards or to take on operational roles. Their volunteers all have at least 3 years expertise – many have a lot more than this – and come from a huge range of professions including marketing, finance, strategy, communications, HR, business development, digital and IT.

Areas covered include trusteeship, mentoring, advisory, hands-on operational roles, short term projects – in fact any type of volunteering that requires professional expertise – have a look at their full listings to get a better idea of the range of ways that skilled volunteers could help your organisation.

The core service is free to all charities (they ask for a contribution if you are recruiting trustees and your turnover exceeds £1 million).  You simply post up your volunteer opportunity to the Reach Volunteering site and then wait for applications or proactively approach suitable looking volunteers and ask them to consider your role.

They do this by promoting skills-based volunteering, empowering young people from diverse backgrounds to work in media and encouraging constructive dialogue and collaboration with the media sector.
