Trustees wanted for Amazing Causes by Northumberland CVA

Amazing Causes Seek Passionate Skilled Trustees for NorthumberlandCVA

Do you support a favourite cause?

Maybe you or a member of your family suffers from heart disease or cancer. Perhaps you feel passionate about the environment or your heart breaks whenever you see a child or an animal in distress.

Charities do wonderful work – often plugging ever-widening gaps in statutory provision.

They save lives.

But did you know that an estimated half of UK charities have at least one vacancy on their trustee board, and that many also have major skills gaps in areas such as law, HR, fundraising, marketing and communications?

Without these skills, charities cannot function. They would be unable to carry out their mission to provide much needed services that address the problems of society – services that you or someone you know may need to rely on one day.

Could you donate your time and your skills to help steer a charity that is close to your heart?

Northumberland CVA wants to link skilled people like you with charities of your choice that have trustee vacancies. We already have several trustee opportunities on our searchable online database and we are working with voluntary and community organisations across the Northumberland to identify and publicise more.

You can get more information by emailing jackie.auld@northumberlandcva.org.uk or by calling Jackie on 01670 858688.
