Community First New Forest (CFNF), a Council for Voluntary Service which supports voluntary and community groups across the New Forest, requires additional Trustees for its Board.

CFNF provides a range of services to those living in and around the New Forest including community development, volunteer centre, children and young people’s services, transport, home improvements and New Forest Nightstop.

CFNF is now seeking additional trustees, particularly (but not exclusively) people who have experience in specific areas such as governance, finance, law, marketing, HR or business development.  Some knowledge of the public and voluntary sector would be helpful but is not essential. It is also looking for a candidate who might in due course become chair of the board of trustees.

The board meets 6 times a year and also holds away days. All trustee positions are unpaid, but reasonable out of pocket expenses are covered.

If you are interested in joining the Board please write to, or email, Michael Clowes, Chief Executive, Community First New Forest, Archstone House, Pullman Way, Ringwood, Hampshire, BH24 1DH. email  For an informal discussion, please telephone 01425 482773.
