We offer a range of ways for people professionals to use their skills to drive positive change in the profession and across society. Thousands of volunteers give their time and expertise across many areas of our work. They build connection and resilience across our community. And they breathe life into our charitable purpose. 

Donating your time and expertise also supports your professional development including improving confidence, strategic thinking and leadership skills. All our volunteering and mentoring programmes support our work around Equality, Diversity and InclusionWellbeing and Skills.

"The opportunity to be able to help someone, even in just a small way, to find their place in the world of work is really rewarding."

Lucy, Volunteer
