BNest Connect

New way to volunteer.

Have you ever thought of volunteering, but never got involved in any projects, because you were concerned it would consume a lot of your time? Or you were never sure what you’d be asked to do?

Well, this is for YOU!

BNest Connect helps to connect emerging social enterprises with skilled professionals, who are willing to give a few hours of their time, using their best skills and experience.

A few hours of your time, your expertise – no further obligations – no strings attached.

Rules are simple…

As a volunteer – you offer to contribute up to 5, one-hour sessions in a calendar year.

That is max 5 hours in a year, that we would ask for.


Your skills, your expertise – doing what you like and you are good at!

No strings attached!

It might happen that your particular skills won’t be required straight away, but knowing that you’re willing to help means the world to us!

We would love to see you on board!

Sharing your knowledge or connections could make a huge difference
to an emerging social enterprise!
