Skills Based Volunteering

Through our partnership with Lloyds Banking Group, we provide the opportunity for Bank staff to volunteer and share their skills with the charities we fund through mentoring and volunteering. This helps charities to become more effective and, at the same time, Lloyds Banking Group staff benefit from stretching their skills in new settings, developing new capabilities, and building stronger ties to the communities where they live and work.

Charity Mentors can offer ongoing support. Some of these areas may include:

  • Business Planning and Strategy
  • Income Generation and Fundraising
  • Social Enterprise Opportunities
  • Human Resources support
  • Financial Management
  • Governance and Management
  • Marketing and Communications
  • Support for Service Users
  • Digital Support

The support is amazing. My mentor is supporting me to become a more effective leader and in turn, is supporting our whole team to step up our practice internally
