AS A TRUSTEE

Mothers for Mothers has a committed board of Trustees which is made up of previous service users as well as those with relevant professional skills. This ensures that lived experience remains central to the ethos and values of the organisation and enables us to fulfil our responsibilities as a small charity. The Trustees meet on a quarterly basis and make a commitment to be a board member for a minimum of 2 years to help ensure continuity and quality of service.

We are keen to talk to past service users who might be interested in becoming a Trustee. We are currently looking for potential Trustees with professional experience in fundraising, legal or HR who might be interested in joining us.
