Voluntary Services Managers

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

Your Local NAVSM


NAVSM Hubs provide our members with the opportunity to meet with others who are responsible for the management or co-ordination of volunteers. Hubs provide access to peer support, advice and information, education, training, development and networking. They also give members the facility to communicate with the National Executive Committee (NEC).

You are very welcome to attend one meeting as a guest to meet members and see what we do before making a decision to join NAVSM. Please click on the contact name besides the Hub you wish to attend to email the Chair to let them know you will be attending and to find out more details.
