Trustees provide the backbone that supports everything we do in the community. We want people who have mad, idealistic ideas for making the world, or just our little bit of it to start with, into a kinder, gentler, funnier place - and who want to get stuck in with like-minded people to make it happen, with real practical plans. We owe it to the people who fund us and the people who use our service to make every penny count. If you're good with budgets - making tuppence ha'penny stretch way beyond what you thought it could do and finding ingenious ways of making the most of existing resources, then we want to hear from you.
We would like people with experience of fundraising. Money is tight for everyone at the moment. If you have experience as a fundraiser or in applying for grants then we want to hear from you. You may have creative and innovative ideas for bringing money in and making connections with people who support our ethos and are able to help.
