Skill Share West Sussex – where giving a little, means a lot!

Skill Share West Sussex is the dating website of the volunteering world! We bring together businesses, organisations and individuals to create positive experiences and share skills.
While there are many long-term voluntary opportunities available many people have skills to offer but are not able to commit to a long-term placement or regular hours. We know that volunteering opens up incredible opportunities and experiences, and we want to make these more accessible to everyone.

The website has two main sections:
1. Opportunities – voluntary organisations and community groups can register their short term opportunities on the website to find volunteers. Previous opportunities have included Website and Social Media Support, Designing a project logo, Renovation/Conservation work and much more.

2. Offers – perfect for if you can’t find an opportunity that matches what you have to share. An offer could be your skills as a web designer to create a website for a voluntary organisation, it could be the use of some equipment or a meeting room that is not always in use or it could be a free place on a training course you are running. Register your offer as an individual or a business and who knows, a voluntary or community group may be looking for exactly what you have to share.

Businesses are also encouraged to use the website to arrange one-off or short project-based volunteering opportunities for their staff. We know that volunteering can be an effective team- and skill-building experience, as well as allowing businesses to give back to the community and promote Corporate Social Responsibility. Students can also use the website to share the skills they are learning, to gain experience in their chosen field and to boost their CV.

The Volunteer Now! team has recently taken over responsibility for the Skill Share website, and will be working very hard to promote it and increase its potential as an excellent resource for individuals, businesses and charitable and community groups. If you have a skill or some time to spare, make sure you check out
