Monthly Briefing October 2023

By | |


Having a positive impact has never been so important. Southwest organisations urgently need a system that facilitates volunteer recruitment and also enables their employees to volunteer for good causes. We have listened to local organisations who highly value actively supporting their people and the communities they live and work in.

Engaged Communities C.I.C. is a social enterprise who is doing just that, building world-class community technology that delivers social impact for our customers.

We have developed next-generation volunteer software, GoVolunteering, that will seamlessly connect companies, educational establishments, charities and volunteers.

The software is built on the success of our previous R&D project, which delivered over 6,500 volunteers, 300k volunteer hours and over £3m worth of social value.

GoVolunteering currently offers a volunteer marketplace, helping people to find personalised opportunities and manage their volunteering portfolio.

But we’re not stopping there.

We are bringing the next stage of GoVolunteering to life, adding an Employer Hub and Volunteer Management Hub.

This one-of-a-kind platform will be a new way to empower collaboration, inspire meaningful connections, and amplify your social impact. Not just a management tool, GoVolunteering will allow businesses and educators to:

  • Connect with local charities and build partnerships.
  • Streamline your volunteer schemes and processes.
  • Get detailed insights into your CSR.
  • Showcase your positive impact.

Get involved and be part of something bigger

We are looking for organisations who are driven to make a difference, to become a founding partner, and help shape the future of this innovative platform.

You will have lifetime use of GoVolunteering, receive tailored support as it grows, and have your say on its development. You will even get to test out new features and workflows, before we release them to the public.

And it’s not just for businesses. GoVolunteering is already used by educators to engage with students, enhance their employability, and help them manage their volunteering, while giving you the tools to manage and measure your CSR impact.

GoVolunteering is set to revolutionise CSR management, and we want you to join us on the journey.
