ValueYou is a volunteer recognition scheme that provides discount cards and gift vouchers to volunteers who have given 100 hours or more of their time to a registered charity or hospital. The scheme is delivered thanks to the generosity of small independent businesses who offer the discounts and gifts free of charge.

“I really liked supporting ValueYou and the work that took place helped me develop commercial business skills.”                     Nathalie – Link UP Volunteer

The Problem

After launching the scheme in Wandworth in 2016, ValueYou came to Link UP looking for support with updating their business connections and advocates of the scheme across the borough. ValueYou needed help with contacting local voluntary organisations to promote the scheme to them for the benefit of their volunteers.

The Solution

ReLaunchee Nathalie stepped up to support ValueYou, and sought to keep up regular contact with businesses supporting the scheme to make sure they have materials (e.g. leaflets) and informing ValueYou if a business has closed or changed owner. Nathalie also set about recruiting new businesses.

The Result

The project resulted in firming up ValueYou’s goal of being able to sustain our presence in each borough we are active in, through reconnecting with businesses in the community and promoting the work of the scheme.

“The project with Nathalie has helped us to establish up our presence and credibility in the local area by connecting us to local volunteers to represent our charity.”          ValueYou
