Our President

Our President
The Duchess of Cornwall became the President of Royal Voluntary Service in December 2012.

The Duchess of Cornwall, together with the Prince of Wales, was Patron of our search for the UK’s Diamond Champions - older people who give their time to improve the lives of those around them – which demonstrates her commitment to recognising the vital role volunteers play in society.

The Presidency came at a pivotal time in Royal Voluntary Service’s history as we celebrated our 75th anniversary in May 2013 and showcased the vital role our charity has played in the lives of many from its launch as the Women’s Voluntary Services in 1938 to the role it plays helping address the needs of the day in local communities and supporting the NHS.

Royal Voluntary Service...

...is a national charity built on local volunteering, giving support to people who need it in hospitals and in our communities.
