We are proud to have within the City of London Corporation’s family, fantastic organisations that will continue to support you. Below are just some of the organisations within the Corporation, as well as other volunteering brokerage services that can help you on your skilled volunteering journey:
City Bridge Trust is the City of London Corporation’s charitable foundation. It provides grants totalling around £20 million per year towards charitable activity benefiting Greater London.
Heart of the City is the UK’s largest responsible small business network, although they are open to businesses of all size. They have recently launched a ‘Find a Charity’ tool – a pan London map providing businesses with information on local community needs and charities they can partner with.
Benefacto is a social enterprise that works with charities to provide support through short term corporate volunteers. They work with charities to identify regular shifts where corporate volunteers can slot in and support service delivery.
BeyondMe is a growing movement of professionals and charities joining together to move the dial on some of society’s toughest issues. BeyondMe enables charities to form long-term and needs-led partnerships with teams of professionals who are eager to give their time, money and skills in a meaningful way.
At Business in the Community, the Community Engagement team works with businesses to support local communities by helping them to understand key issues, create local networks and broker relationships with community organisations; developing the internal capacity to deliver themselves.
Team London is Mayor Sadiq Khan’s volunteering programme for London. They run a number of programmes providing skilled volunteers for small charities as well as small grants and trustee training.
