The Advisory Board is composed of the Executive Committee, plus other external members selected by virtue of their specific skills, knowledge, or their experience.

It is a vital organ for the functioning of Helpyness, as the platform lives thanks to the level of “digital reputation” it enjoys. The staff takes care of the online presence of the site, as well as press releases, newsletters, announcements on social networks. The role of staff manager is covered by Maurizio Bulgarini.
