What Time and Talents does


Time & Talents is an employee volunteering service that seeks to build sustainable partnerships between public, private, and community organisations. Through our extensive range of projects, we facilitate the placement of skilled employee volunteers within the local community, where their knowledge and experience are utilised by those in need. Employee volunteers provide a range of services such as training, mentoring, workshops or acting as trustees, and engage directly with local people and charity staff, ensuring their work has the highest possible impact.

Established in 1996 as a collaborative venture by five local companies, Time & Talents works with more than 100 charities, schools, care facilities, parks and other community-focused groups. Our first-hand knowledge and strong ties with local organisations gives us a distinctive insight into community need, allowing our employer partners to develop unique, long-standing partnerships with third-sector organisations.

What time and talents does

I really enjoyed the opportunity to share my knowledge of using social media to help these charities gain confidence in using social media to better reach their target audiences. It was also a fun way to network with my colleagues internally whilst we prepared the presentation and we all thoroughly enjoyed the chance to work across teams."

The volunteers were lovely with our members; they were friendly, patient and supportive. They organised a perfect day out enjoyed by all and provided them with an experience they couldn't otherwise have had."
