Use Cases: KindLink

One of the features of the life of Blackfriars Settlement is the frequent visits by individuals or teams of volunteers; fulfilling the widest array of activities imaginable. I want to record our most grateful thanks to all those from our Corporate Sponsors who have given their time, imagination and commitment to support our work.

The BBC’s weekly technology programme BBC Click, which airs internationally and is presented by the show’s charismatic host Spencer Kelly, has recently featured KindLink in one of their episodes.

We are very proud to announce the official start of our partnership with Do-it Trust. For those of you who still don't know it they manage the do-it.org database, the biggest digital platform for volunteering in the UK, with more than 50,000 registered organisations and 250,000 monthly visitors.

The charity sector has taken a bit of a bashing over the past few years, and in some cases, rightly so. The misuse of funds and aggressive fundraising tactics employed by some large, well known charities have had a powerful, negative effect on public perception of the sector, which has trickled down to affect the work of other, smaller charities which,are reliant on the faith and support of the public.
