Director, Trustee, Board/Committee member or Governor?!

Organisations have different names for the volunteers who are responsible for the running of the organisation - some are called Board members, some are Committee members, some may use the word Director for example. Broadly speaking, they mean the same thing - the people at the top who are ultimately responsible! These are important roles (for which training and support is available) and without volunteers at board level voluntary sector organisations could not exist.

Give us a call on 0800 389 6046 to arrange an appointment to chat with our staff about what opportunities are available - at Board/Committee level as well as operational opportunities. Meetings can be arranged outside of the office in some cases.
