Trustees Needed

The organisation has four paid members of staff and its own premises, and is planning to develop new projects.

A dedicated board exists but wishes to add to its numbers. Commitment, the ability to learn, and an interest in the charity’s area of work is essential. Experience of charity trusteeship, management, or employment law, or working with older people would be an advantage but is not a must.

We are particularly looking for local Fulham residents living with disabilities, young people and those from BME backgrounds.

This is an unpaid position, but travel expenses can be met. Job description and application pack available, please contact us with any questions or to request a form.
