Voluntary Action Islington (VAI) is the main provider of support to Islington’s thriving and diverse voluntary sector and promotes community action through volunteering in the Borough.
VAI works with over 500 voluntary organisations based or working in Islington. We provide information, advice, assistance and training for the staff, volunteers and trustees of local charities and represent the interests of the voluntary sector to our partners in the statutory and private sectors.
In addition we also run the local Volunteer Centre, providing support for and brokerage between local people and voluntary organisations seeking volunteers.

Our King’s Cross base is a voluntary sector hub providing serviced workspaces, conferencing, training and meeting facilities – and is the location of Islington Volunteer Centre.

VAI is seeking a new Chief Executive to move us forward in the next stage of our development. The Chief Executive will take responsibility for the overall management of VAI’s staff and volunteers; report to the Trustee Board on organisational performance; represent VAI – and indeed the local voluntary sector – at meetings with partners; and working with Trustees to review and develop strategy and operational activities in a period of significant change.
