The Havering Volunteer Centre would like to proudly introduce their brand new board of trustees, who bring with them varied and valued skills.
Shelley has been working in the voluntary sector since 2001 when she joined Victim Support Havering. Shelley was the Senior Service Delivery Manager for Havering and Barking and Dagenham. This is where she first became aware of the outstanding achievements that volunteers bring to an organisation without whom many could not and would not survive. Shelley has continued to be a volunteer throughout her adult life, starting with PTA’s, Rainbow Girl Guide Leader and more recently assisting the Royal British Legion with their Poppy Collection Appeal.
Shelley joined HAVCO as the Volunteer Centre and Quality Manager in December 2014 but when they sadly closed their doors in October 2015 she could not walk away from helping individuals and organisations with their volunteering needs.
In October 2015 she set up the new Havering Volunteer Centre which is now in full operation and have new offices in Central Romford. She has a team of volunteers assisting her in the office ensuring the daily functions and life at a busy Volunteer Centre runs smoothly and assisting those in the borough to engage in volunteering.
She has made many great contacts in Havering and neighbouring Boroughs all seeking volunteers to assist them in their volunteering organisations and we have many great and varied volunteering roles you could get involved with.
So far the Centre has been very successful in gaining new volunteers wishing to volunteer in Havering and we are always seeking more volunteers so if you would like to find out more please contact any one of the team who will be willing to assist you in finding that vital volunteering role in Havering.
