Volunteer as a Trustee

Use your skills, experience and vision to help shape our charity and support the delivery of activities for young people with disabilities in Glasgow.

Would you like to support a fantastic charity in your spare time?

We are are looking for new Trustees to join our Board and help shape the direction of the charity for the next few years, as well as making decisions about the best interests of the organisation. 

We have an existing Board of active volunteer Trustees who are remaining in post, however after a period of focus on a large capital appeal we are keen to recruit some new Trustees to supplement the Board and bring a fresh perspective on our direction now this project is largely complete.

If you have an interest in supporting a charity which delivers activities for young people with disabilities, and you can bring some professional or personal experience to the Board along with some availability to be actively involved, then please read on.

What does being a Trustee involve?

Our Trustees are responsible for the governance of the charity, making the big decisions about finances and strategy, and providing guidance and support to the operational volunteers.

Being a Trustee suits people who may want to volunteer but don’t have time for a regular commitment. Our Board meets four times a year (in the evenings) plus the Annual General Meeting, and Trustees would be expected to do some work between meetings at a time that suits them. It’s up to you how much or how little you want to get involved in projects, but on average we would expect around 3 hours a month supporting the charity, including Board meetings.
