Meet the Team - Naomi Goldberg

METRO GAVS team is as diverse and vibrant as the sector in Greenwich. Coming from very different backgrounds, METRO GAVS staff are working together to provide services that support the delivery and development of all voluntary, community and faith organisations and to support and develop the voice of the sector.
