Skills Exchange Programme

A Skills Exchange pairs a charity with a small team of Lloyds Bank colleagues. The Support Team use their skills, knowledge, and insights to help charities tackle a thorny problem or realise an untapped opportunity

Charities receive dedicated support over a 6-month period from their Support Team; typically, via several virtual support sessions with contact in between. Together they agree how best to apply the support. For example:

  • Informal discussions with representatives from the charity (CEO, staff, trustees)
  • Workshops to deliver information and guidance and facilitate discussion
  • Reviewing existing documents, e.g. strategies, policies, business plan, communications
  • Action planning sessions
  • Hands on training Content building sessions, e.g. populating a business plan template together
  • Supplying tools and templates

The Mornington Project have previously benefitted from taking part in this programme. They have shared their experience in the video below:
