The Boost! Programme: benefiting others using your professional skills


What is the Boost! Programme?

The Boost! Programme matches volunteers with professional skills with voluntary and community sector organisations who are small, in crisis or work with vulnerable people.  We are looking for experienced people from a variety of professional backgrounds to provide much-needed support to a range of different organisations.  Whether you are currently working full or part-time, are between-jobs, or are retired; if you would like to get involved in a short-term project that will have a long-term impact, then Boost! is for you.

Programme is run by Volunteer Bristol, in partnership with the Support Hub at Voscur.  Started in April 2011, this project specifically supports voluntary and community sector organisations in Bristol that are currently facing difficulties, or working with vulnerable or socially excluded groups.  It is funded by Bristol City Council.
