Volunteer Board Trustee

Mansfield CVS

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.

I have known Mansfield CVS for many years and have found them to be invaluable. They are currently working with Oak Tree NMT to manage our Lottery funded staff and as a group of volunteers, we would have struggled without them.
