Voluntary Action Islington is seeking new Trustees

Voluntary Action Islington (VAI) is a membership organisation that champions and strengthens the voluntary sector and volunteering in Islington. We currently have over 500 members ranging from community groups to large organisations. We provide a range of capacity building support through advice surgeries, training and timed interventions and, through the Islington Community Network, we provide a voice to the local sector, representing them where appropriate. VAI is also the accredited Volunteer Centre for Islington supporting volunteers and organisations through brokerage and capacity building.

We are seeking new Trustees who are or have been active in Islington’s Voluntary and Community sector as staff, volunteers, service users or Trustees. We are also interested in people who have an understanding and experience of financial and personnel issues, fundraising and working with other organisations in the voluntary and statutory and private sectors. We would like our new Trustees to bring with them new ideas, skills and energy to help drive the organisation forward. We are particularly interested in ensuring that VAI’s Trustees reflect the diverse nature of the community in Islington.
