We make employee volunteering simple.

But don’t just take it from us…

‘In summary, it’s all there in one place– the platform has a great range of volunteering choices, gives us personal freedom to choose where, when and how, and has a dedicated team to support us with any queries and practicalities.’

- Lynda Clark, Morton Fraser

‘After the first lockdown almost half the firm was furloughed, and many of those people had never spent more than two weeks off work before. It can leave people a bit lost. Not only did volunteering provide support to the wider community, but also provided a small element of support to furloughed colleagues.’

- Sue Arrowsmith-Rodger, Thorntons Law

‘When a client is first referred to us, we spend time getting to the heart of what they’d want from a befriender. We need to take great care over the ‘matches’ we create. Thanks to Social Good Connect we now have a much wider pool of potential matches. The platform has enabled us to bring new, skilled people on board and get us moving quickly and efficiently.’

- Linda Swan, Tayside Cancer Support

‘It’s hard to argue with the purpose-led basis on which Social Good Connect was founded. It’s affordable and there’s obvious value in connecting different communities and connecting different parts of the same community. If you want giving back to be part of your organisational culture, it’s the ideal place to start building that, or to increase your current social impact.’

- Lise Hudson, High School of Dundee

‘Working with Social Good Connect feels more personalised and easier than other routes to securing volunteers. To other charities seeking skilled volunteers, I’d say get involved with employee volunteering
through this platform! You have nothing to lose – it’s a straightforward process to get advice on role descriptions and find can-do volunteers quickly.’

- Suzie Repova, Catesbi CIC

“It’s a feel-good initiative that makes business sense and suits both introverts and extroverts. You’re helping employees grow a sense of purpose and wellbeing outside of work, you’re making a big difference to charities who really need skilled help, and you’re helping yourself retain a motivated workforce. People have a lot of issues to deal with right now, and they’re all different. Volunteering to help others is a great distraction from personal and work challenges.”

- David Hamilton – Ninja Kiwi

“The Social Good Connect team are proactive and targeted, with real people sending us regular updates on new placement opportunities that genuinely match our profiles. That part is important – it’s not just a platform and a subscription, it’s a human team helping us make a difference!”

- Lisa Thompson – Purpose HR

“The ‘search, filter and find’ set-up is powerful, especially when you have limited time and want a meaningful match. Being able to measure the contribution we’ve made is valuable, whether that’s number of hours spent volunteering or the range of charitable sectors we’ve helped.”

- Lyndsay Robertson – Grant Thornton

‘We see Social Good Connect as a professional helping hand in making volunteering happen, especially with less visible charities. The matching service enables our employees to get out and about allowing them to give back and connect with causes that really interest them. It’s straightforward to use and it eases the pressure and internal admin that often stops organisations getting employee volunteering off the ground. Using Social Good Connect helps you get on and walk the walk and not just talk the talk!’

- Ralph Burns – Forth Valley College
