Through Skills Match, we’re aiming to tackle social challenges during COVID-19 and beyond, building resilient communities for lasting social change.
Skills Match is an online platform that links up skilled and knowledgeable business volunteers with community, voluntary, social enterprise and public sector organisations that have made a request for professional support across a wide range of skill sets.
Do you have skills that you’d love to share? Let us know by registering on Skills Match here – we would love to hear from you.
Skills Match volunteers are individuals that offer support with anything from online marketing and website support to legal advice, facilities management, accountancy and more. To both offer support as a volunteer and request support on behalf of your organisation, you’ll need to register on the Skills Match platform here or via the buttons below.
Skills Match is supported by the Department for Communities and in partnership with the Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action (NICVA).
