Become A Trustee
We are looking to recruit volunteers to a charity trustee role for a local community centre in Isleworth. The BridgeLink Community Centre serves residents of the Ivybridge Estate and the surrounding area in Isleworth hosting a wide range of activities including Youth clubs, language classes, fitness classes, cooking schools, advice and advocacy sessions along with stay and play, a crèche and a food bank.
The centre is run by the BridgeLink Charity (since 2000) and we’re looking to expand our board of trustees. We’re looking for local people with an interest in local community issues – fundraising and bid writing experience would be handy, but not essential.
