Trustees (unpaid)

Would you like to contribute to our changing future?  If so, we would like to hear from you.  

We are looking for committed individuals to expand the range of Trustee skills on our board.  We would like to  have a wide range of people on the Board and we seek to be representative of the diverse population in the county.  The Board of Trustees is a small dynamic and developing team where contributions are welcomed. There is no need to have trustee experience to apply but an interest in supporting unpaid carers is necessary.

We expect Trustees to contribute actively to the Board by giving strategic direction; setting overall policy; defining goals and setting targets; evaluating performance; ensuring the charity’s effective and efficient administration and financial stability.

Trustees are expected to

  • attend up to six meetings a year for around 2.5 hours (all currently on Wednesday evenings) and an annual planning day;
  • Annual General Meeting
  • get involved in support work including fixed term projects;
  • contribute advice and support on an ad hoc basis; and
  • attend events.

1 in 5 people are unpaid family carers and you will either know someone who is a carer or may even have been or will be a carer yourself in your lifetime.

You need to be prepared to ask questions, examine new ideas and be confident to give your opinion; you will bring your professional and personal skills to the table and will also have an opportunity to learn about new things. You will learn about how a charity operates from the inside and better understand the kind of challenges we face.

If you are interested in this opportunity please contact Helen Hunter, Chief Executive on 01609 780872
