Hollywood star Michael Sheen says he is 'immensely proud' after having been unveiled as President of the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA).
Although it is considered an honorary position, Sheen is expected to play a significant role in the organisation.
The actor from Port Talbot has become increasing involved in the third sector in recent years.
He represents UNICEF as a UK Ambassador, and acts as a patron for various organisations including Social Enterprises UK, Credit Unions Wales and End Youth Homelessness Cymru.
He has also campaigned and advocated widely on issues including housing, fracking and the Future Generations Act.
