UCL Together (now closed)

UCL Together was developed by Human Resources and Information Services in response to the recognised impact of COVID-19 on UCL staff workloads. The aim of UCL Together was to help provide support to departments with high workloads by connecting them with staff who are willing and able to volunteer their time.

The Unitemps Team were involved with the set up and running of UCL Together since the start of the first lockdown. This was set up as a way to re-route colleague capacity throughout the University by allowing colleagues with a decrease in workload to volunteer with other departments experiencing an increase in work due to Covid-19.

We had a fantastic response to UCL Together from both volunteers and departments requesting volunteer support and between April and August 2020, we have arranged over 840 days of volunteering which adds up to almost 4 UCL working years! We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that was involved with and supported UCL Together and we wish you all good health during this time.

Hear from colleagues about how UCL Together supported them to manage high workloads in their team by connecting them with staff who are willing and able to volunteer their time; testimonials are available here.
