Wandsworth’s call for Trustees!

This week celebrates Trustees’ Week, an annual event to showcase the great work that trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference. The borough’s volunteer service, Volunteering Wandsworth, has been doing its bit to help recruit for charities in the borough.

The London Borough of Wandsworth has over 1000 charities and community groups, all with trustee boards and management committees. Research suggests that half of these will have at least one vacancy on their board. Trustees are the people in charge of a charity. They play a vital role, volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about the charity's work.

During Trustees’ Week 2012 5th to 11th November 2012, Volunteering Wandsworth has been calling on residents to offer their services as trustees to local charities, by highlighting a particular vacancy in the borough each day.

If you are interested in finding out about how you can become a trustee, please visit the Volunteering Wandsworth website [www.volunteeringwandsworth.org.uk] or call the team on 0300 365 9950. You will be able to find information about what you need to consider before becoming a trustee, and the different opportunities that are available.
