TimeBank is a national volunteering charity. We run our own volunteering projects which are designed to tackle social issues. They focus on mentoring and youth-led volunteering tackling big issues head on. From social exclusion to digital inclusion, we show the difference volunteers can make and use this to influence others – policy makers, charities and businesses.
Over the last ten years, we’ve seen how powerful volunteer mentors can be. Mentoring works because everyone’s different. And through one-to-one support, every individual’s needs can be addressed. Multiply that by 10, 50, a hundred people, and you create change - not only in individuals but also in the community. Click here to find out more about our other mentoring projects.
Leaders Together Project
Leaders Together matches leaders of small charities, social enterprises and community groups with senior professional mentors who volunteer to support them on a one-to-one basis. The mentors we have on board can assist the organisations with everything from fundraising and financial management to communications and project management.
Any organisation can get this free support – as long as it is based in London and has an annual income of £100,000 or less. The group leaders and volunteer mentors receive an induction before they start, get to meet with their mentor for a minimum of 24 hours over six months, are invited to free training sessions and also get a chance to meet other leaders from small charity or community groups in order to share experiences and build networks.
