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.


Share your skills not just your time!

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.

CSV also needs a wide range of small organisations who need volunteers to come forward.

Volunteer now! Everyone has a skill they can share!
