How is skillsbridge funded

SkillsBridge relies on a combination of private and public sector grant funding as well receiving support through a charitable bond scheme.

Delivering SkillsBridge requires a skilled and dedicated team who put a lot of work into ensuring every project runs smoothly from start to finish. Without the help of our funders and supporters we wouldn't be able to deliver this service to the organisations who depend on the help of our volunteers. If you're interested in finding out about our charitable bond or would like to discuss contributing to SkillsBridge please click below to find out more.
