We were really pleased to be contacted by WhatCharity and advised that we had been selected to submit a pitch to a local organisation, which could in turn result in a business partnership of volunteering moving forward. We were prepared, ready and good to go to present when the Covid19 pandemic started to raise its head and thousands of organisations started going on lock down and closing their doors to visitors. The opportunity was swiftly put on hold and we were advised that a new date would be scheduled in months to come when life was able to resume to normal for everyone. 
Following this decision to hold the corporate presentation we were thrilled to be contacted again by WhatCharity to advise us that as a result of our telephone interview we had been shortlisted and selected to make a short video clip to promote Learning to Work and all we do in preparing young people for the world of work. 
Doing good isn’t meant to be complicated and WhatCharity exist to make things more transparent and more effective for charities, individuals and companies alike. They help people find the right causes and match them with charities close to their hearts, homes and offices. 
Did you know that 70% of income goes to only 1.5% of charities in the UK? WhatCharity addresses this imbalance and aims to give all charities an equal opportunity to share their missions, projects and achievements. 
There are so many ways business can engage with Learning to Work to make a difference to the employability skills and opportunities of young people, bringing careers advice and pathways to all, mentoring, helping disengaged young people, developing tomorrows entreasures and generally bringing skills, employability and ways in to work to life. 
If you have a volunteering programme or would like to develop one please contact Nancy Lalor our Operations Director on n.lalor@learningtwork.org.uk and she will help you and your organisation get involved, make a difference and who knows even meet your employees of the future.
