Membership

 

The Trust has been set-up to be ‘owned’ and run by the community it serves. As such local people can support our work in a range of ways, particularly by joining as members. 

 

Because we are an independent company limited by guarantee we do not have shareholders – we have members and it is our members who have the overall control of the various aspects of the organisation, such as important powers like electing our Board of Directors and voting on major issues.

 

To ensure that we can successfully work towards our Vision we strive to gain the full support of the community. To achieve this we need members who share our aims and Vision.

 

We like our members to fully represent the cultural diversity of the West Itchen area therefore we welcome and encourage membership applications from individuals and organisations of all backgrounds from the West Itchen area.

 

You can join as an individual or on behalf of an organisation. Member organisations can nominate an individual to attend Trust meetings and generally represent the views and opinions of their organisation.  Individual residents and workers can join and attend meetings in their own right.

 

Becoming a member of the Trust is free. All we ask is that you:

 

Live or work in the West Itchen area;

or;

Are an organisation based in the West Itchen area;

and:

Are committed to the objectives of the Trust and act accordingly.

 

Becoming a member of the Trust is free. There is no joining fee and members can enjoy the following benefits.

 

The Trust will:

 

  • Work closely with members to fulfil the Trust’s mission and Vision
  • Provide a strong voice for members within the West Itchen area of Southampton, thus enabling members to be ‘heard’ in the right places.
  • Canvass opinion and act as a forum to enable members to share ideas and information that may be of mutual benefit.
  • Act as a provider of information for members wishing to locate, and gain contacts within, other community organisations and groups.
  • Help members to develop projects and to bid for funds from sources other than the Trust. In the future the  Trust hopes to be a modest provider of grant funding to members whose aims and purpose follow the Trust’s Vision.
  • Keep members aware of any changes, progress and updates of other member organisations and the  regeneration of the West Itchen area.

 

Simply download an application form and return it to us. We look forward to welcoming you as a member!
