Charity Support Network

Led By: Chris HillmanHead of Employability and Apprenticeships, Minstead Trust

We come together in an ambitious partnership to support organizations. Our goal is to provide Portsmouth’s charities and not-for-profits with resources and committed individuals strengthening their missions. Together we offer assistance in connecting them with the tools they need as well as passionate individuals who can make a difference in the community. 


  1.  To create a database of tradespeople and professionals willing to volunteer their time and expertise.
  2. To match those volunteers with the needs of Portsmouth charities, allowing them to focus funds on frontline activities rather than infrastructure.


  • 20 Charities are actively working with 14 business partners through the charity support network.  
  • Raised over £15,000 and donated 100 devices to local schools.
