Case Study: Michael Wood: Linskill Trust

Michael Wood has been a Trustee at Linskill and North Tyneside Community Development Trust for over four years and has brought 40 years of Senior Manager experience within the NHS and Civil Service to the Board.

“Being part of the North Shields community, everyone should think about how they can add to its strength and vitality. We all have something valuable to give and a responsibility to contribute.

Volunteering as a Trustee at the Linskill and North Tyneside Community Development Trust, a charity at the heart of our community, is my way of making a contribution.

Trustees are accountable to the local community for what the Linskill Trust delivers and how it is run, so being a Trustee is both a responsible and rewarding position.

You get the opportunity to see what a difference the Trust makes to the quality of life for individuals and groups within our community and being a Trustee, you play a vital role in making this happen.”
