Resource: Business In The Community & ProHelp

ProHelp provides free professional advice and support to local community groups and voluntary organisations and operates through 33 ProHelp groups in city, urban and rural locations across the country. They aim to ensure that local community groups can access free professional help and advice with issues that might otherwise hinder their work and projects. Each ProHelp group is a local network of professional firms, each is supported by a manager who acts as a 'broker' and matches the needs of the community organisation with the professional firm who has offered their support.

There is an application process and also criteria that need to be met to be eligible for support. Your community organisation will need to meet certain criteria to be eligible for support. Please read the 'Apply for Support' section on website before making an application to your local ProHelp group.

Once you have confirmed you meet the criteria to be eligible for support, select your region and fill out an application with your local ProHelp group at
