Help us deliver & develop our popular newsletters for volunteers, full of information, recent achievements, and upcoming events. Work with local and national staff to gather case studies and photos, and help us create templates for use in local newsletters across the Trust. We also need your help to keep in touch with our volunteers in other ways, on and off-line. If you can spare 1 or 2 days a week, then we can offer you a fulfilling role with a focus on people and what they can achieve.
