National Association of 
Voluntary Services Managers

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

Stephen Osgathorp


I worked for the NHS for 24 starting life as a PTS Ambulance driver before moving into office administration and then later as a manager of a Mental Health Day Service. Then in 2009 I took up a new challenge to create and develop a Volunteer Service from scratch for South West London & St Georges MH NHS Trust. 

NAVSM was a fantastic source of help and guidance and I joined in 2010 holding the role of Treasurer for several years before my current Website Co-ordinator role. I left the NHS in 2017 to take up a new job but continue to be involved with NAVSM for the website and IT support at the Annual Seminar.


Outside of work I run a classic car attending car shows and enjoy watching my children in their various club activities.
