National Association of 
Voluntary Services Managers

Lead, promote and develop best practice in 
Volunteer Management in the NHS and Healthcare

Anita Butterworth


I have worked in the NHS for 18 years starting in Training & Development before moving into Volunteer Services in 2006.  My current role is Volunteer Services Manager at St Helens & Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and I am also NAVSM Chair for the Northwest HUB. I was a member of NAVSM for many years before taking up the post of Northwest Chair 3 years ago. I feel privileged to have been nominated for this role which gives me the opportunity to attend the NEC meetings and provide the communication link for Northwest members on National Volunteering topics and issues.
