We connect businesses and professionals with charities and causes. We help you to give your skills and expertise for free, by matching you with people that would benefit. Our extensive knowledge and experience of the local charity and community sector ensures that the experience is fulfilling for you and for the people you support...more

Give back. We match you with leaders from the charity sector who need help to solve a challenge they're facing. You act as their mentor, meeting with them on a one-to-one basis for six months. It's a great way of helping a charity leader to solve a problem. Being a mentor is also a great volunteering experience:

"By being a mentor and participating in Community Work's mentoring programme, I've learnt a huge amount about our local community and about voluntary organisations and charities, and it feels good to have given something back to the city."

One of our volunteers, Ivan, has been a volunteer mentor with us for the last three years...more

Share your skills. We match you with charities in need of your skills and expertise to complete a short-term project. You provide free, one-to-one advice, for a short period of time to help a charity. It's a great way of helping a charity that couldn't afford your skills otherwise. And it's also a great volunteering experience:

"I meet a lot of very interesting people through our connections with Community Works and the projects we get involved in are extremely worthwhile."

We've worked with Brighton and Hove Chamber of Commerce to ensure that their and our members benefit from both of our support.

We've worked with Time2Give to support their annual ball which asks its guests to bid for brilliant prizes with their time rather than their money - you can book to be part of the ball taking place in April 2017...more

We've worked with Brighton Marathon to help smaller charities who're unable to meet the marathon's usual terms and conditions to still benefit from the weekends fundraising opportunities.

We've worked with Amex and other local businesses to enable them to help celebrate local voluntary and community action.
