Oakfield Trust seeks volunteers with legal skills

By Maurice Garvey 

OAKFIELD Trust, a community-based social enterprise in Clondalkin, is recruiting for voluntary directors to join their Board of Management, reports Maurice Garvey.

Oakfield Trust was established in partnership with South Dublin County Partnership in 1996 – in response to the need from community-based projects and agencies to find suitable premises in the Clondalkin area.

Oakfield Trust Volunteers wanted

The organisation is looking for people with financial and/or legal skills in particular.

Board of Management members meet approximately every two months for 2–3 hours in total, usually in the morning.

All profits from Oakfield Trust are reinvested back into the community and have been used to support other community-based projects and social enterprises in the Clondalkin area.

As a pilot initiative, the trust also manages a small commercial business park in Clondalkin, and their team provides specialist skills in areas such as spatial planning, property development, financial planning and community-based service providers.

Oakfield Trust has provided a range of very critical and significant supports to a number or projects in the Clondalkin area in the form of feasibility studies, start-up grants, business development supports, project loans, project management and capacity development for social enterprises.
