Hundreds of employees across Tayside and Fife have used a platform that matches workers to volunteering opportunities.
The platform was launched eight months earlier than initially planned by Dundee-based Social Good Connect in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Caroline McKenna from the not-for-profit social business said she was thrilled at its uptake.
She said: “There has always been a desire for closer collaboration between businesses and charities, but it’s held back by lack of understanding of how to work together, and how to measure the impact.
“Our digital platform makes it easier to connect private, public and third sector communities.
“The businesses who’ve signed-up can keep their employees engaged – especially furloughed staff – and measure and improve their social impact.
“Meanwhile, the charities they’re helping are saving precious time and resource, and can focus on delivering direct support.”
Through Social Good Connect, furloughed and working employees have the freedom to volunteer for any charity, cause, or opportunity they care about and make a meaningful social impact.
The platform was built by Stirling-based app development firm Vidatec.
