Benefacto is a London based social enterprise, which has been running since 2012 with the aim of increasing the contribution of professional people to the community. It was created by Linz Darlington, who as a management consultant with 3 paid days off a year to volunteer for a charity had difficulty in deciding where his skills would be most beneficial.
He decided to set up Benefacto to match people like him to a suitable charity. Professionals can search for volunteering opportunities through the Benefacto website and likewise, charities can register their interest in benefitting by receiving volunteers.
If you are a professional that would like to offer your time and skills, or charity looking for a helping hand, have a look at the Benefacto website.
