Link Up Battersea expands to Borough of Wandsworth

Linking skilled volunteers with local charitable organisations

LINK UP BATTERSEA IS NOW WORKING THROUGHOUT THE BOROUGH OF WANDSWORTH

After successfully launching in Battersea last year, Link UP now recruits volunteers and works with charities throughout the borough of Wandsworth. Link UP brings together individuals who are willing to share their professional skills with local charities, community groups and social enterprises which need these skills to make a real difference in the Wandsworth community. All of the volunteers are professionals and whilst some are in work others are retired, semi-retired or not currently working.

The projects the charitable organisations need help with are structured, have clear start and end dates, are flexible to fit in with busy lives and are designed to make a difference. Link UP ensures that projects are a good fit for both the organisations and the volunteers.

To date, Link UP has had over 20 volunteer placements within 13 organisations on projects including among others IT, financial support, marketing, human resources, research, funding support, and web design.
