Become a Trustee

We are looking for amazing people!

Can you give up some of your time to help our local charity working to support D/deaf and other sensory loss needs? We are urgently seeking new board members, to oversee governance and provide strategic leadership at an exciting time of change and growth.

Empathy towards sensory loss would be an advantage, but not essential. Passion and commitment are far more attractive to us. We are particularly keen to hear from people with a strong Finance, Legal or Health & Social care background. If you want to make a difference locally, contact us and try volunteering.

This is an unremunerated role, but reasonable travel expenses are met. For an informal chat about the role call Ben Colman on 0333 220 5050.

Give something back and make a difference!
