Our impact in 2015

In 2015 Reach launched its online self-service platform. This has been a time of transformation and change that will enable us to continue to connect charities with the skills and experience they need .

The year in numbers

Last year Reach:

  • recorded 506 volunteer placements

  • supported 306 charities

  • made 2,300 introductions between charities and volunteers.

We estimate that the total value of the skills transferred to the sector by our volunteers is £7.3m.
