Clover HR recognises the additional challenges faced by employers operating in the Third Sector. Committed to making real change, whilst frequently operating within restrictive funding regimes and tightly regulated environments, charities and not-for-profit organisations need to focus on delivery and impact.
Leaders must meet the needs of clients, service users, donors, commissioners and standards agencies while managing teams that are often diverse and demanding. Clover HR appreciates the heightened sense of purpose of employees and volunteers within the sector who expect a values-driven approach allied to supportive and committed leadership.
Here at Clover HR, we understand that it can be challenging to balance the need to provide high-quality HR services, as well as attempting to make a difference and create real change in the world. Our HR services are designed to answer the specific challenges posed by the sector, offering reliable and timely support to non-profit organisations and charities across the UK.

Clover HR – Delivering Results That Matter
Charities and non-profit organisations face many sensitive issues, challenges and regulatory requirements: internally and externally. Clover HR can streamline many such issues via the implementation of tried-and-tested HR support for the Third Sector including:
DBS Checks & Disclosures
Clover HR can support you with advice and guidance on the necessary DBS checks required for each role and ensure that the depth and the level of disclosure are appropriate for the work being undertaken. [Note: DBS checks and disclosures are free for volunteers, those for paid employees are not.]
Vetting of Professionals Who Work With Children & Vulnerable Adults
You must ensure that those most at risk are thoroughly protected: deep vetting of education and care staff will identify those individuals unsuitable for care work or even potentially dangerous.
Incident Reporting and Write-Ups
The Charity Commission can impose severe sanctions and penalties on charities that fail to report incidents, including enforcing operational restrictions. Clover HR can ensure that your company adheres to the guidelines of the Charity Commission.
Rights and Reimbursements for Volunteers
Though volunteers are not paid for the time they give to your organisation, they are entitled to reimbursement of expenses incurred under the aims of the charity, including:
- Appropriate work clothing
- Equipment costs
- Food and drink

what our clients say
“When my colleague and I first met with Clover HR to discuss our requirements, their passion for Clover HR shone through! They were interested to learn about us and our work as a charity. We felt that Clover HR offered a more personable approach and an appointed HR Business Partner meant that we had a single point of contact who would understand the Foundation and to build a relationship with. Thank you for your support to date – we’re looking forward to develop our working relationship!”
“We have been with Clover for just over two years, and they have taken a lot of stress off our shoulders. We are not trained HR specialised and in spite of our best efforts, we were getting things wrong because of the ever changing legal landscape of employing people. We have found them to be very supportive and professional in their approach and would highly recommend them.”
“We are a Birmingham based charity who have been working with CLOVER HR since 2019, they have taken hours out of many laborious exercises, and given helpful templates for new policies and procedures. We have on occasions asked and received promptly up to date advice on delicate HR issues, but don’t feel as though we are being hounded by emails, but have the reassurance of their guidance when needed”.
