What volunteers say

I enjoyed working with Fayre & Square to design their first annual report. Their ethos is something close to my heart and it was lovely to be given creative freedom to help them communicate what they have achieved over the last couple of years.

Working on this project to develop a social media strategy has allowed me to continue to refine my social media marketing skills [and] to see growth in my skills as a marketing professional. I have every belief that great things are in store for The Wheelchair Skills College and I am delighted to have been part of this project.

It was such a great feeling to be able to help an organisation streamline their processes so that they can spend their valuable time in helping others. That makes me feel like I’ve made a contribution to making the world a better place!

Being exposed to new organisations, their objectives and challenges and their stakeholders forced me to think outside of what I was used to in my previous roles, which is important to prompt creativity whilst being able to bring my own experience for their benefit. Very rewarding to know you've been able to help in such a way.

Volunteering with Link UP London surpassed my expectations. It felt great to contribute my time to a worthy cause and I enjoyed the experience more than I thought possible. It was great to work with people really passionate about their organisation and I loved turning my skills to a new challenge. It feels wonderful to do something worthwhile and have such a great time doing it.
