Remote & UK Volunteer Support

In response to the many requests for help from our UK based charity partners and the generous offer of support from our network of qualified accountants, we are now offering UK based charities a UK Volunteer Accountant Programme. The programme is designed to give charities with limited resources access to pro-bono qualified accounting expertise and an excellent way for accountants to give back whilst picking up some very rewarding experience in the not for profit sector. 
 
Typical areas our UK volunteers have supported include: Year-end accounts preparation, Charities Commission reporting, audit preparation and bookeeping, system implementations, developing financial procedures & controls, budget preparation, cash-flow forecasting, cash management and financial planning. Most UK volunteer accountants have limited availability due to other work commitments and will therefore offer support on either a short term, part-time or remote basis. 
 

Remote pro-bono Technical Assistance
 

During the Corona virus pandemic we will not be organising onsite face to face assignments, we are arranging remote technical support whereby experienced finance & accounting professionals can support non-profits via email, telephone and video conferencing. This also means we can now provide remote support to organisations globally and offer volunteer roles to professionals unable to travel. This will remain a service after the pandemic. If you are keen to become a Remote Volunteer or you are an organisation that would welcome this type of support please email volunteers@afid.org.uk



Trustees & Treasurers 

Many of our charity partners are seeking trustees and treasurers and would love to secure the services of an accountant to take on this very rewarding role.
