About Neighbourly and How To Get Involved
Find out about Neighbourly - the award-winning social platform for charities, communities, volunteers and businesses. Meet the team and see how you can get involved.

We’re building a neighbourly world to make it easier for people to help one another

Neighbourly was set up in 2014 by a group of like-minded people that believed there was a new way to significantly grow community investment, by making it easier for people to ask for, and to give help.

We were one of the UK’s very first B Corporations, meaning we’re a for-profit company certified by the non-profit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Together with our fellow B Corps we are redefining how sustainable communities are built and what success in business means.

Through the Neighbourly platform, large businesses and their employees are finding it easier to discover and support local community causes – meaning these organisations can get more of the essential funding, manpower and expertise they need to continue their incredible work.

How do I get involved?

Neighbourly is designed so purposeful businesses can donate volunteer time, money, food and more to good causes operating in their local community.

01.

Create a free Neighbourly page to describe the work your charity or community group does locally and the support you need. Your page is then your hub for the various Neighbourly programmes through which you can receive financial donations, food surplus and volunteer support.

02.

Fundraise for a charity or CIC by using Neighbourly as your fundraising website. Receive online donations directly into the charity’s bank account and record and celebrate the funds raised in partnership with local businesses.

03.

Volunteer with the good causes, charities, schools, foodbanks and community projects that are affiliated with company sustainability programmes. Make a difference by supporting the local causes that matter most to you, now and into the future.

04.

Donate as a business - corporate funds, volunteer time and surplus food and products. Neighbourly can link your company to thousands of vetted charities, helping your local teams to share resources and build happy, healthy communities. Contact hello@neighbourly.com for information about business memberships.
