Who we are Volunteer Action is a community minded local charity that helps volunteers to improve the lives of local people in need. Specifically, it provides a Community Car scheme and Befriending services to people living in the north of East Northamptonshire. We serve a large rural community in East Northamptonshire from Oundle to Easton on the Hill in the north and to Thrapston in the south. What we do We ensure elderly, infirm and disabled people in the community get access to some of the vital services they need to remain independent and prevent feelings of isolation. Our volunteer drivers drive those with no other reasonable means of transport to appointments to maintain their health and wellbeing. Our Befriending team provide a visiting and telephone service that offers companionship and a listening ear. Your contribution The Trustees, acting together at a meeting, provide the high-level management, guidance and oversight of Volunteer Action. We are particularly interested in applications from individuals with some of the following experience: • Income generation • IT Trustees are appointed for three years. The position is unpaid; however, all reasonable expenses are reimbursed. Our Trustees are expected to attend 6 meeting each year and participate in annual events to recognise the contribution our volunteers and supporters make towards the service. Most do more than this, helping with specific projects which make the most of their skill sets. If you can volunteer 5 -10 hours per month, you can make a difference.
