We are a small, local charity and membership organisation with a long history of providing charitable services to communities in Wimbledon and surrounding areas.
Most recently we have embarked on developing a virtual community hub, ‘Wimblecomm’, which we are hoping to develop into the ‘go-to’ website for anyone interested in finding out more about the many wonderful Merton based community venues and what they have on offer – connecting people, places and passions!
With three Trustees and a Secretary serving on the Board, a small team of volunteers, and two part-time staff (one temporary), we are always keen to hear from individuals who are interested in contributing their skills and would like to take up a new challenge by joining us in either a Trustee or Co-optee capacity. Please refer to our Trustee/Co-optee Specification for further details of what is involved and how to get in touch if you would like to register your interest and/or find out more.
If you would like to volunteer with us in a less formal capacity, we are also looking for individuals who can spare a few hours a month to help us with a number of initiatives and tasks, such as attending and writing up reviews of community events, developing guest blogs and submitting articles for our monthly e-newsletter, ‘Community Bytes’ or helping on the technical development of Wimblecomm.
To help us spread the word about our services to both users and providers of community venues we are also looking for volunteers to act as ‘Ambassadors’ for our charity, getting involved in engaging with new venues and user groups through networking and other channels.
We are in the process of finalising several volunteering specification documents for the above activities which will be published here in due course. In the meantime please do get in touch by emailing us or by calling our Community Development Executive, Susanne Ollig, on mobile 07534 518 473, if you would like to get involved!
We look forward to hearing from you.
