Local Skills for Local Communities

Link UP London mobilises professional skills to create vibrant, engaged and linked local communities.

We currently work in the boroughs of Wandsworth and Lambeth

Where can I find meaningful volunteering near me?

Link UP's Skilled Volunteering programme connects local people with professional skills to Social Good Organisations on meaningful, short-term projects. We structure these to make a real difference in the community!

"A great way to provide support to local charities without needing a long-term commitment - for me, it's the perfect way to offer my time on a voluntary basis. I finished my project feeling like I'd really contributed something valuable."

I've had a career break, now what?

ReLaunch helps professional women, like you, who are out of the workforce prepare for their next steps. Through our 4-session workshop, identify your strengths, build confidence, create a clear goal, and become part of a strong and supportive network.

"The ReLaunch workshops have given me the confidence to believe that I can achieve my dreams and make a difference - despite being out of paid work for many years!"

I'm a local organisation looking for skilled support.

Our structured engagements with Link UP Skilled Volunteers are great for consolidating changes your organisation has made over the past few months during COVID.

"It was brilliant to be able to receive such excellent design work from such a talented and professional volunteer. We're delighted with the infographics she created, which help us communicate our charity's impact quickly and engagingly. We're really grateful to the volunteer designer and to Link UP"
