This is an exciting and important opportunity for individuals with the right skills who want to make a real difference to the community!

We need up to four new trustees (including a new Treasurer) to join our dynamic Trustee Board which plays a key role in setting MSVA’s strategic direction and ensures that we meet our aims and objectives.

During this difficult year, we have delivered an exceptional service and intend to continue doing so. Will you join us in this vital work?

We need people from all walks of life who:

- Are willing to speak their mind and listen to the opinions of others
- Have a track record of promoting diversity and equality
- Have professional experience in areas that will provide fuller coverage within our Board, for example accounting and HR

Report on supporting people during Covid-19

Together with Healthwatch West Sussex we are capturing Covid-19 experiences, challenges, solutions, and future planning of organisations in the Voluntary & Community Sector of Mid Sussex during this unprecedented time.

Our first report detailed the responses from our Online Resilience Survey.

Our newly published second report draws on conversations with MSVA members which took place between mid-May and mid-July. It is a snapshot from a period of rapid change when lockdown measures were still in place.
