Giving Tuesday 2017 is fast approaching!


Our annual trustees’ week event was a little different this year. Knowing that many of our member organisations struggle to maintain a diverse and skilled group of trustees we decided to focus on trustee recruitment as the theme. Working with our partners from Volunteer Centre Lewisham and Lewisham Local we co-hosted a trustee recruitment information and networking event at the cheerful Good Hope Café at PLACE Ladywell.

Our Business Development Manager, Sophie Millward, talks about getting to grips with the latest data protection regulations.

VAL Director Tony Nickson explains why now is the perfect time for Lewisham VCSE staff, volunteers, trustees and activists to come together and apply our energy and creativity for healthier communities.


Chris Freed says there are lessons to be learned about the future of VAL and the sector from the Catford Cat and Deptford Anchor campaigns
