Use your professional skills to help build a sustainable voluntary sector

SKILLS MATCH | Matching the skills of business volunteers to support the community, voluntary, social enterprise and public sectors.

SKILLS MATCH is a new, online platform that will match business people with projects tackling social challenges during COVID-19 and beyond.

SKILLS MATCH has been developed to match the skills and expertise of business volunteers to support local community, voluntary and social enterprise organisations in areas where they are looking for specialist and professional input but do not have the resources to pay for it.

SKILLS MATCH will also match business volunteers with public sector programmes to contribute to project teams, or to offer additional resources and skills for the benefit of society.

SKILLS MATCH is supported by the Department for Communities and is in partnership with the Northern Ireland Council for Voluntary Action (NICVA).
