The UK volunteering and learning charity
Professionals – everyone has skills that you've learnt through work or your hobbies. We can help match your skills with people in your local community who really need that skill.
CSV has produced a booklet to help guide people who are about to retire through some of the possibilities of keeping active through volunteering in retirement. Click here
CSV is running a major initiative called The Professionals which aims to encourage people to share their skills, not just their time.
Funded by the Cabinet Office through their Social Action Fund the project aims to reach people who haven’t thought of using their skills to benefit charities, small organisations or individuals. Whether you are a competent cook, a brilliant bookkeeper, a fun-loving fundraiser or a diligent director you may have skills your community needs.
The initiative will also seek actively to identify roles that small organisations need and find the right volunteers for them.
Volunteer now! Everyone has a skill they can share!
