How we can help you

We have over 35 years of experience placing skilled volunteers into more than 10,000 non-profit organisations throughout the UK.

Our community is based on the simple belief that non-profits can achieve so much more by drawing on the expertise of skilled volunteers and that high-impact volunteering is very rewarding for the volunteer.

We encourage people throughout the UK and from every profession to donate their skills to charities. We only accept people with more than 3 years experience so all our volunteers have lots of valuable expertise.

Why have skilled volunteers?

The commitment, energy, time and talents of skilled volunteers helps charities and non-profits like yours to survive and prosper. We know, because this is how we operate ourselves.

Skilled volunteers can come from the private, public or charity sector and their professional backgrounds mean they can carry out many different kinds of roles within your organisation, complementing the work of paid staff. On any given day, there are more than 6,000 volunteers placed by Reach supporting charities throughout the UK.

They work in HR, governance, marketing, PR, IT, finance, fundraising, communications, mentoring, design, auditing and many more. Feedback from charities is often: "These people really do make a significant difference to our charity".
