Pilotlight ponders opening two new offices

Professional volunteering charity Pilotlight is considering expanding its operations by opening two new offices in Wales and the west country.

The organisation – which assists charities by arranging for business people to provide free consultancy services – currently works with 44 charities from its offices in London and Edinburgh.

It is carrying out a feasibility on opening the proposed new offices.

Pilotlight encourages business people to give up their time to help charities with issues such as business planning. Businesses pay £1,300 per year to be involved and promise to give up three hours a month to assist charities.

Fiona Halton, director of Pilotlight, said: “We are giving more than £2m worth of skills every year. We know bringing in such talent is effective – 94 per cent of the charities we work with develop significantly and become more sustainable.”

Organisations Pilotlight has worked with include youth charity JusB and offenders charity Unlock.
