Our Team

RCVYS is run by a group of Trustees who are elected by our members to serve a three year term, where a third of Trustees stand down each year. We also have a small staff team who carry out the day-to-day work of the organisation.

RCVYS represents the Voluntary, Community and Faith Sector on a number of different local Committees, Groups and Boards. RCVYS Members elect a number of Representatives on a yearly basis to attend these different groups, a list of which is available to download below.
