first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The site also offers ./guidance to professional individuals and firms interested in offering their services for free to the community.The launch of the Web site follows an extensive study and consultation process conducted in 2001 by Business in the Community and funded by the Home Office, which resulted in the ‘Free for All’ report. This found that relatively few VCOs who could benefit from free professional support seemed to know what services were available or where to find them. It also showed that access to free professional support seemed to depend on location, luck and personal contacts. A separate survey in 2002 asked 102 VCOs if they would find useful a dedicated Web site that listed pro bono services and how to obtain them. Ninety nine per cent said they would.Lord Filkin, Home Office Minister for Race Equality, Voluntary and Community Policy said: “The Professionals4free website and helpline will provide an easy and effective way for people to get the help they need, while providing a route for professionals to get active in their community.”The site is also designed to help professional firms who do not know how and where to announce the professional skills they have to offer. Chris White, UK Director of Communications at the leading Business and Financial advisor firm Grant Thornton, comments: “The professionals4free Web site is a really valuable resource for professionals wanting to offer their skills and expertise since it signposts them to brokers. We deliver our pro bono support through ProHelp and find that using a broker is key to ensuring our services go to where they are needed most.”The professionals4free site has been developed by Business in the Community’s ProHelp programme, TimeBank, NCVO and Business Community Connections, with funding support from the Home Office Active Community Unit.
