• Struggling to make your volunteer or budgeting spreadsheets do what you want them to?
  • Need an expert to look at demographic data or analyse the need of your service users?
  • Know you have great data but not sure how to make it visually appealing or tell the right story?

PBE can provide charities with pro bono support from a dedicated volunteer economist to help them with their ad hoc data needs. That might include data analysis or visualisation, spreadsheet tasks or short pieces of research.

How does it work?

Step 1: Tell us your data request by filling out our submission form
Step 2: If PBE can help you, the team will work with you to develop a short volunteer brief, describing what you need and what the objectives are.
Step 3: PBE will upload your brief on its website and publicise it to over 800 volunteer economists, and match you with the best economist available.
Step 4: The economist will work directly with you to fulfil your needs.

How much support can my charity request?

Charities can receive approximately 1-5 days over a period of up to 5 months.

Can my charity receive support?

Any charity, community group or social enterprise with a presence in the UK can apply for the help of PBE’s volunteer economists in this way.
