We are a small, local charity and membership organisation with a long history of providing charitable services to communities in Wimbledon and surrounding areas.
In recent years we have embarked on developing our online community hub, ‘Wimblecomm’, which we are developing into the ‘go-to’ website for anyone interested in finding out more about the many wonderful Merton based community venues and groups, and what they have on offer – connecting people, places and their passions!
In the Vlog below our Chair of Trustees, David Hall, shares his vision for Wimblecomm and tells us more about his experiences in volunteering with the charity ever since our Community Centre closed in 2012!
With three Trustees on the Board, one of whom serving additionally as Secretary to the Board, a small team of volunteers, and two part-time staff/contractors, 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.
Prior trustee experience is not required, and training/networking will be provided to bring new trustees up to speed with legal, governance and other aspects of the role. Please refer to our WCA Trustee Co-Optee Specification December 2020 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 get involved 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 e-newsletter, ‘Community Bytes’, or helping us with the technical development of Wimblecomm.
To help us spread the word about our services to both users and providers of community space(s) we are also looking for volunteers to act as ‘Ambassadors’ for our charity, getting involved in engaging with new community venues and user groups through networking and other channels.
If you are interested in getting involved with the WCA/Wimblecomm and want to learn more about the different volunteering opportunities, the Trustee, or the Co-optee roles, then please do get in touch by emailing us or by calling our Community Development Executive on mobile 07534 518 473!
We look forward to hearing from you.
