Action East Devon is seeking Trustees to join the Board of Trustees to help steer the organisation through a challenging but very exciting time.  

Action East Devon is a charity that provides a range of free services to other charities and volunteer groups in East Devon, such as funding advice, support on governance, and training.  Our aim is to improve the quality of life for people who are most in need in East Devon. We do this by hosting a number of projects and by working in partnership with other relevant organisations to make a real difference.

By sharing your skills and providing encouragement and leadership, you will help to determine and steer Action East Devon’s future direction by providing advice, constructive challenge when needed and recommending creative solutions to problems.
