Board Trustee

Are you passionate about making a difference in our community? We are looking for a new person to join our board of trustees, offering a unique opportunity to shape the future of volunteering and community projects in Kensington and Chelsea, one of London’s most diverse boroughs.

Established in 1969, we are the oldest Volunteer Centre in the country and are deeply rooted in the local community, empowering individuals to contribute positively through volunteering. Our programmes help to break down barriers to inclusion faced by people from marginalised groups, including disabled and learning disabled people, those living with mental health challenges, people with criminal records, and people from low-income households seeking employment opportunities.

As a trustee, you will play a pivotal role in guiding the Volunteer Centre in its mission, fostering positive change in Kensington & Chelsea. Responsibilities include:

  • Attend and actively participate in board meetings, promoting constructive dialogue and effective decision-making.
  • Uphold the best interests of VCKC, maintaining positive public representation and adhering to confidentiality standards.
  • Support volunteering in K&C and commit time and effort. If you have knowledge of Kensington & Chelsea, the voluntary sector, or both, that is a plus.
  • Demonstrate strong communication, analytical, and collaborative skills.

Join us in shaping the future of volunteering in Kensington & Chelsea. Become a trustee and make a meaningful impact from the start. If you are ready to make a difference, apply now. We are really looking forward to hearing from you!
