Donate your professional skills
Whatever skills you have, there may be ways you can use them to help us with our work. In the past (and present!) we have used the help and advice of photographers, film-makers, administrators, spreadsheet enthusiasts, social media buffs and lots more besides. Volunteers have helped with the proofreading of marketing materials – and of course with stuffing envelopes too!
We even have volunteer gardeners who help us maintain our lovely grounds, where our partners spend time during their training course.
What is in it for you:
Offering your skills and time in this way helps us make the most effective use of our time. Sometimes we even learn new ways of working that help increase awareness of our work, and help with fundraising in the future.
“I’m not sure when the term “Guru” was first used to describe what I do; I simply enjoy playing with spreadsheets and databases – and Canine Partners seemed willing to let me indulge myself free of charge! Being involved, albeit in a very small way, in helping to develop the technology that supports an organisation which regularly transforms people’s lives is an amazing privilege. Working with an incredible team that dedicate themselves to such a worthwhile cause is really inspiring – and that’s just the dogs. The staff are equally impressive, which helps to make a great working environment which I can heartily recommend. I’ve just discovered that the definition of Guru includes words like elder; weighty; and venerable – hmm I think I need a new job description!”
