#MakeGoodThingsHappen, Volunteer! We at CVS have just launched our campaign to promote and increase the level of volunteering support within our community.
Over the next 9 months running until March 2019, we will be campaigning across Cheshire East to reach a whole new audience. The campaign will highlight the often overlooked personal benefits volunteering can offer the volunteering individual (Make good things happen for you), as well as the vital support volunteering grants our community (Make good things happen for the world around you).
The focal point of the campaign will be our online volunteer recruitment service, a free tool for all local VCFS organisations. If you haven’t done so as yet, this would be a great time activate your CVS Volunteer Managers account and start advertising your opportunities. CVS Members can request support on this from their dedicated Development Officer.
All sector volunteer managers and coordinators are invited to the next CVS Volunteer Managers Network meeting (link below), where our Marketing Manager will be discussing the campaign in more detail, and how your organisation can help support it, we hope to see you all there.

Add a young trustee to your board.
We have recently been supporting young people in Cheshire East to become trustees through our Young Trustee Project to help them gain valuable experience and knowledge whilst diversifying and benefitting trustee boards of organisations in Cheshire East.
We have 3 young people looking for a trustee role in the Macclesfield area. Two of them are interested in joining a trustee board for an organisation which supports young people, and the other young person would like to join an organisation which helps people with a medical condition.
If you have a trustee vacancy in these areas and would value the addition of a Young Trustee to your board please contact Mark Smith on 01270 763100 or email email@example.com
