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!"

What more I can offer to my local community?

Why not join our Expert Team and share your lifetime of experience and expertise with local Social Good Organisations? You will help them to think clearly about their strategies, structure, systems, and approaches, and provide guidance on specific issues local Social Good Organisations are experiencing.

"Great to know my professional skills still have a use after retirement and that I can use them to help worthwhile organisations in the community!"

Our work in the community

Link UP has been mobilising skills since 2016 bringing many local individuals and organisations together in meaningful ways.

Volunteering Opportunities

Website Design

Millennium Community Service is a small family grassroots volunteer project offering free courses & workshops to the disabled, Elderly & unemployed. The organisation partners with Lewisham & Morley College who assist through supplying teachers for each course; from health & safety on a building site to website building, animation to arts & crafts, 6 days a week.

Trustee

The Carnegie Community Trust was set up with support from Lambeth Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund to run the Carnegie Library building in Herne Hill for the benefit of the community. The library, now located in one room, is still run by Lambeth Council.

FILLED - Fundraising Research

Clothe Me – Thank You was set up in order to help those facing financial hardship to clothe themselves. By providing redeemable vouchers which can be exchanged in our partner charity shops for basic clothing, the organisation helps those in need find clothes, they are otherwise unable to access, with dignity.
