Pro Bono & Business Volunteers – Advice & Support For Groups

What is the Pro-Bono Bank?

The Pro-Bono Bank is a pool of local professionals and business leaders who offer advice and support to voluntary and community sector organisations at no cost. We founded the Pro-Bono Bank in response to the many voluntary sector groups we work with who on occasion need expertise that only the business community can provide.

It provides voluntary sector organisations with access to business skills, experience and knowledge to support them to grow, develop and problem solve. To date we have 30 businesses signed up to provide free support through the Pro-Bono Bank. That’s over 1000 staff who live and work in Trafford, and who want to give something back.

What skills are on offer?

We currently have advisors and expertise in the following areas on offer:
