  • stand for a place on the Management Committee
  • be a part of one or more of our working groups that make decisions on different parts of how Opening Doors is run from the training we run to AGM planning
  • attend our Annual General Meeting

  • represent Opening Doors on external steering groups, sub groups, regional and national forums to talk about things that are important to us

Depending on how you choose to get involved, your confidence can grow. The more you do, the more skills you will develop and the more experience you will get. This means you will be better equipped to take on new challenges.
