About Transform Drug Policy Foundation

Transform is a global leader in developing, and advocating for, more humane drug policies. We want to recruit two new trustees to our board to help drive forward our work.

This is an exciting time in drug policy. Rapid changes in approach are occurring in the UK and internationally. Transform has a long history of shaping these changes and seeking to ensure that reform reduces harm, improves social justice and protects public health. Our Anyone’s Child campaign is a highly effective family-led movement that has had a significant impact here and abroad. 


We are looking for two new Trustees to join our Board at Transform and play a vital role in making sure that Transform achieves its core purpose. 

We are looking for people with digital marketing, comms and/or fundraising experience.

  • Attend quarterly committee meetings as a member of either the Finance and HR Committee or the Fundraising, Diversity and Communications Committee (virtual)
  • Attend ad hoc strategy meetings when required
  • Bring experience, enthusiasm and commitment to the role and broaden the diversity of thinking on our board

We welcome applications from all candidates with the skills and commitment to support the work of Transform. We especially welcome applications from Black and minority ethnic candidates as part of our commitment to ensuring a full diversity of experience is reflected in our work. We are committed to an anti-racism strategy and are embarking on a comprehensive review later this year. We are also interested to hear from candidates with personal lived experience which informs their understanding of the need for drug policy reform.

Trustees are appointed for a five-year term of office, with the option of renewal for one further term to a maximum of ten years.
