Trustee / Governor search

Would you like to help steer a local charity or school? If you have experience or a professional background that you would like to use to help at a more senior management role then this could be the volunteering for you.

  • Trustee roles search: We list a range of trustee vacancies on the Volunteer Suffolk website, click here.
  • Go direct to the charity: If you know a charity that you are interested in, contact them directly or look on their website to see if they are recruiting Trustees.
  • School Governors: If you are interested in being a School Governor, click here for more information.

Employee Supported Volunteering

This is also known as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). If you are a company wanting to set up an “employer supported volunteering” programme, or you are an employee who has been given some time by your company to volunteer, we can help!

This is a bespoke service, so please contact the CAS Volunteering Team at [email protected] or 01473 345400 and we will work with you to achieve your individual aims.

Contact the charity directly

Do you already know the charity that you would like to volunteer for?

Many people have a charity that has helped someone in the family, have used their services or just feel a really strong pull towards their aims and ethos.

If this is the case, go straight to their website and look under their volunteering section or the ‘How can you help’ section.

If you are finding it hard to find a contact, get in touch with the CAS Volunteering Team at [email protected] or 01473 345400 and they will try and help you find the right person.
