New Partnership To Improve Access To Volunteering Across The Region

7 June 2023

 

The launch of a new Volunteering website across the Liverpool City Region will link organisations looking for volunteers with people who want to help their local communities at the end of Volunteers Week 2023.

The regions Volunteer Centres who work across Halton, St Helens, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton and Wirral have partnered together so that organisations across can collaborate, share volunteers, and promote various volunteering opportunities, significantly amplifying the region's community impact. 

Local non-profit making organisations can now sign up for free and utilise a single account to showcase their volunteering opportunities across the entire region. On the other hand, volunteers benefit from a seamless experience by easily accessing and joining opportunities, logging their hours, and tracking their volunteering journey from a single login.

The TeamKinetic powered website  was first introduced in Halton & St Helens through the COVID19 pandemic to connect local people who needed help with those that wanted to support with simple tasks.  The success of this and the following years has brought investment from the Combined Authority to support that one stop place for residents to make a difference in their local communities..

Claire Redford Kerr, at Halton and St Helens Volunteer Centre said:

"It has long been an ambition for us to make it easy for organisations to recruit volunteers in one place. 

Bringing opportunities and a one stop space for volunteers to find them is part of a City Wide Solution to better partnership working and responding to events; activities and emergencies across the patch".

Chris Martin, director at TeamKinetic, expressed enthusiasm about the project, saying, "At TeamKinetic, our ambition has always been to make volunteering easier. This project is a testament to that commitment for the people of the Liverpool City Region, made possible by the fantastic and forward-thinking teams at each of the local infrastructure organisations."

The partnership is set to go live on Wednesday, June 7th, marking a significant milestone in enhancing access to volunteering opportunities throughout the Liverpool City Region.
