A year of impact and more to come

Annual review

We are excited to launch our annual review for 2014/15!

It’s been a jam-packed year where we have grown upon our success from previous years: we’ve seen demand from charities grow particularly in the trustee recruitment sphere, new partnerships were developed and a record number of matches made.

Many of our matches this year were trustees, in part due to our Matching service which in November 2013 was made free for charities with a turnover of under £1 million.

Here are some of the year’s highlights:

  • 710 volunteer placements were recorded, a 23% increase on last year
  • 372 trustees were placed, a 67% increase on last year
  • 2639 introductions were made between charities and volunteers
  • We reached the 1000th trustee placed since TrusteeWorks launched in 2009
  • We celebrated our 35th birthday
  • We launched a partnership with LinkedIn on their UK volunteer marketplace

We are now looking forward to an even better year ahead as we await the launch of our new digital platform.

You may have seen in previous blogs (you can read more here and here) that we have been developing a innovative digital platform which will make it easier for charities and volunteers to find each other and put the power to search and connect in their hands.

We have been developing the new site throughout 2014 and we are pleased to say that we are on the home stretch so we look forward to delivering this to you soon.

You can download our 2014/2015 annual review on our website.

I hope you enjoy it!
