Link UP has been mobilising skills in the borough of Wandsworth since 2016. We moved into Lambeth in 2018 and are planning to expand into other boroughs in the coming years.

Through our Skilled Volunteering and ReLaunch programmes we have brought over 100 local Individuals and 50 Social Good Organisations together in meaningful ways.

We work closely with local Social Good Organisations, Individuals and Companies to connect communities and help them overcome their distinctive challenges together.

Link UP believes in:

-

Connection

We invest in meaningful relationships where participants gain a deeper understanding of their community and themselves.

Collaboration

We foster cooperation across sectors, backgrounds and professional experiences to deliver high-quality initiatives and opportunities.

Capacity

We promote personal, professional and organisational growth in everything we do.

Community

We support committed people and organisations to create active and cohesive communities.
