Trustee Opportunity

Dr Edwards and Bishop King’s Fulham Charity

 

Would you be interested in joining the team at our charity? Or do you know someone else who might be interested? We are looking to recruit a Trustee. The role would suit someone who has a good knowledge of Fulham, and who understands the effects of urban poverty. You would help us grant funding to improve the lives of local people that are facing hardship and distress.

 

You would need good decision making skills. You would also need to be able to attend a reasonable number of meetings in each year. These meetings will be concerned with the management of grant giving, as well as with the overall governance of the Charity.

 

We would welcome applications which reflect the diversity of our local community.

 

This is an unpaid position, but reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.
