Giving Skills

All Besoms help givers who have special skills put their talents to work for people who need them. If you have skills in

  • carpentry
  • painting
  • DIY
  • cooking
  • literacy
  • teaching

or if you have any other special skill that you would like to apply, your local Besom can match you with a nearby project that needs your help.

See the Local Besoms page to give time in geographical regions.

"As a carpenter I wanted to give my skills to people in need near where I lived. Besom helped me to do this and I was able to build and fit cupboards and shelves for several single mums in my local area."

"My first Besom project… experience was amazing. I did it with my small group and working together has made us much closer. We did some decorating for a local family…[and] they could not believe that we were willing to give up a Saturday to help them, and without being paid!"
