The Southmead Project is a charity that provides specialist counselling and support for survivors of abuse and addiction across Bristol and its surrounding areas. We are looking for enthusiastic, hands-on trustees to join our fantastic team.
We are particularly interested in hearing from applicants who have worked with people affected by trauma and addiction, experience in counselling and mental health, or with a background in health or education.
What the Role Involves
As part of the Trustee Board, you will be supporting the Southmead Project in providing strategic guidance and advice to the senior staff. The trustees are all instrumental in helping the charity to achieve its objectives and in ensuring its sustainability.
The trustees' duties include:
What the Southmead Project is Looking For
Trustees should ideally have an understanding of how counselling works and how a small, community-based organisation operates. Trustees will preferably be based in or near Bristol, and ideally if they have links with the Southmead area itself.
Trustees are required to attend Board meetings for 2 hours once a month, the charity’s AGM each year, and respond to emails in between meetings.
Why Volunteer For Us?
This is an opportunity to play an important part in the running of a unique charity that provides support to people that have experienced abuse, trauma and addiction. You will be working with a team of friendly, enthusiastic and hard-working people, who are all motivated to provide crucial support for survivors and to empower them to sustain the progress that they have made.
