All voluntary organisations are governed by a board of unpaid volunteers, that’s what makes an organisation a “voluntary organisation”.
Volunteering as a trustee for Mansfield CVS gives you the opportunity to get involved and ensure that our organisation does what it is supposed to do. Being a trustee is a responsible but rewarding way to volunteer.
Being a trustee is a brilliant way to develop your skills. It gives you a range of experiences that are useful to employers (in fact some employers are so supportive of volunteering as a trustee that they offer time off for their staff).
Who can volunteer as a trustee?
Anyone can volunteer as a trustee. You don’t need to have years of experience in a similar role. Professional experience can be useful, but lived experience is just as important. Your perspective on an issue as a member of a specific community, age group, as someone who has been involved with a service, or who lives in a particular location is just as valuable.
