We exist to assist charities and social enterprises to make more impact, by helping them to take skilled projects off their plates. We also exist to offer professionals the opportunity to live a more meaningful life by giving back their skills to causes they care about.

Shortages of professional skills is a critical issue for the social sector. According toThe Centre for Asian Philanthropy and Society's Doing Good Index (2018), 74% of charities surveyed report that they have difficulty recruiting skilled staff and 71% of charities report that they have difficulty retaining skilled staff. Skills shortages often hamper the ability of charities and social enterprises to make impact as their frontline staff are often pulled away into other skilled projects.

Our own research suggests that the skills shortages are most acute in the areas of marketing, design and communications.

LocalMotion's skill based volunteering platform, solves this problem by helping charities and social enterprises engaging with professionals that volunteer between 10-30 hours of their time in short term project. Each short term project results in a deliverable that is easy for the social sector organisation to implement.
