Royston Volunteer Centre manager Denise Graham’s regular look at the voluntary sector in North East Herts

This week we return to the subject of trustees – the dedicated and important people who volunteer to manage a charity or community group.

Also sometimes known as directors, board members, governors or committee members, these are the people with ultimate responsibility for directing the business of the organisation.

These volunteers work behind the scenes, playing a vital role, volunteering their time and working together to make the decisions that really matter about the charity’s finances, activities and plans for the future.

People often become trustees to give something back, but there is a two-way benefit.

Charities benefit from the range of skills and experience that their trustees bring, but trustees can learn and develop new skills that may open up new opportunities for them, as well as meeting people who share their passion.

Our volunteer centre has a very active management committee which meets every other month, on a Tuesday morning, at our town centre HQ.

Each trustee takes the lead on a particular aspect needed to ensure the smooth running of our organisation, and supports the staff and volunteers so that they have the resources needed to carry out our work in the community.

Some of our trustees also help in the day to day activities as well.

Due to one of our members moving overseas, we currently have a vacancy for a trustee with experience in writing business and marketing plans and knowledge of IT and social media impact data.

If this is you? Just get in contact for more information or other trustee opportunities.

You can find the centre Royston & District Volunteer Centre in the Royston Town Hall Annexe, Melbourn Street, Royston, SG8 7DA
