Furlonteer

About Furlonteer

Furlonteer is a not-for-profit project designed to connect charities and good causes with people who have been furloughed due to the coronavirus outbreak and want to offer their time as a volunteer.

Furloughed + Volunteer = Furlonteer

The concept was thought up by Hamish Shephard, co-founder of Hello Fresh and founder of BrideBook; Rosie Shephard, founder of The Luxury Communications Council (LCC); and Sam Tasker-Grindley, Associate Director at RSM UK.

How It Works

People who have been furloughed, made redundant, are unemployed, or simply want to offer their time can register as a Furlonteer. Applicants will be asked for contact information, area of residence, skills, and the amount of time they are willing to commit for an 8 week period.

Organisations such as “charities and social / environmental enterprises” can register for help and are then matched to suitable Furlonteer(s). The application form asks for basic organisation/project information, as well as details of the type of volunteers you are looking to recruit.

The team at Furlonteer is small, however, so it may be some time before you Furlonteers are matched with suitable organisations.
