Become a Trustee at Mental Health Resource.

Do you want to make a difference to the lives of local people with mental health conditions? We are looking for two new Trustees who can think strategically and complement the existing Board.

What is the role of a Trustee?

We are looking for a strategic thinker and someone who would like to make a difference in our community. 

You would be working with other trustees who have different skills, knowledge and experience. It's an interesting role in which you can help formulate ideas about how we as an organisation can best address the challenges and opportunities that exist in an increasingly complex and changing environment.

Who are we looking for?

We would love to hear from you if you have a true interest in helping to improve the lives of those with mental health conditions in our community, and especially if you have skills or experience in marketing, finance or working in a charity. No experience of being a trustee is necessary.

What is the commitment?

  • You would be expected to attend and participate in six Board meetings per year which are held via Teams/Zoom and last 2-3 hrs.
  • The Board is also supported by two sub-committees: Finance and Risk and Marketing and Fundraising, which meet four times a year. 
  • A DBS will be required.

How can I apply?

Further information about the trustee roles are available in our Trustee Recruitment Pack.

We are committed to equal opportunities and promoting diversity. We want our Board of Trustees to reflect the diversity of the population we serve and we welcome applications from people from all backgrounds, especially from under-represented groups. So if you’re excited about either of these roles but your experience or skillset doesn’t align perfectly with the role descriptions and person specifications, please apply anyway – you may be the right person we are looking for.
