We have recruited three new Trustees this year but would be really interested in recruiting a Trustee with passion and energy for supporting us with fundraising – September 2017
SUF is here to make a difference and you could be part of that change. As a charity, the board of trustees/directors oversee the strategic direction, governance and future of Suffolk User Forum.
We are looking for people who can add to our board skills, people who may have championed user rights and want to contribute to developing SUF. You may be a service user with lived experience of mental health, either directly or perhaps as a family carer and would value contributing to a small but lively organisation that is making real changes for people in Suffolk.
We would particularly value people who can bring additional skills to our board, including financial experience, business development, coaching, complimentary therapies and fundraising.
We can offer you support and training regarding the role of being a Trustee. There is the opportunity to be developmental and creative with our team who are keen to widen our reach with people in Suffolk. You would be made very welcome as our staff and trustee board really value the time given to us in this valuable voluntary role.
The trustee role is voluntary and not a paid position in SUF.
If you are interested in finding our more about the trustee role or would like to attend a board meeting, please contact Claire Anderson, Company Secretary on tel 01473 907087.
