In April 2020, Charity Talent and FlowFolk launched ‘CharityFolk’ an independent initiative to introduce furloughed marketing, digital, fundraising and data talent to the charity and not for profit sector. The campaign has enabled Charities to get access to an army of volunteers to support their needs, and enabled talented furloughed individuals to continue to use their invaluable skills for an awesome purpose!
Within the first 3 months of the campaign, we have successfully introduced over 125 volunteers to over 70 charities. We want this campaign to continue to scale and grow and we are keen to hear from more charities and not for profit organisations who are trying to respond to the current crisis, whilst safeguarding their own sustainability. We are also keen to hear from more volunteers who would like to assist charities and not for profit organisations.
Our volunteers have been able to take on valuable tasks that existing staff have not had the skills or simply the time to undertake. To date these individuals have added real value to existing and new campaigns.
