Trustee Vacancy – Life Chance Trust

 

Do you understand the challenges of building confidence, resilience, wellbeing and independence after a difficult start in life?

 

Do you want the chance to shape the direction of an exciting new charity working to transform the life chances of 16-25 year-olds affected by childhood trauma?

We are looking for up to FOUR new trustees to join our talented and lively governing Board. These roles are unpaid, but we can reimburse your travel and related expenses.

 

We’re especially keen to hear from you if you have one or more of the following:

  • lived experience of childhood trauma (personally or within your family)
  • expertise and links within the voluntary youth sector
  • relevant specialist knowledge of youth mental health or social care
  • experience of digital development and online fundraising
  • existing charity governance / trustee or committee experience.

 

We’d especially love to hear from confident, articulate young people aged 16-25 who feel they can bring their unique perspective and/or experience to help others. You don’t need to have been a trustee before, and you’ll be trained and supported by fellow trustees and Head of Trust.
