Trustees Wanted
South Lakeland Mind seeks trustees to help govern this busy local charity.

Our board of trustees is looking for a Treasurer, plus two more general Trustees to ensure South Lakeland Mind is running well and doing what it was set up to do - enhancing the quality of life of people experiencing mental and emotional distress and working generally towards the promotion of better mental health and a greater sense of wellbeing for people in South Lakeland.

The work of trustees includes ensuring South Lakeland Mind: - has the funds it needs to operate - spends its money sensibly on the activities it was raised for - acts within the law, including preparing reports and accounts to send to the Charity Commission - doesn't break the rules in the SLM constitution

As a trustee, you will use your skills and experience to make sure the charity runs efficiently, which may sometimes include getting advice from external sources. All trustees make decisions about the charity collectively, working as a team which meets once a month (usually in the second week of the month) in Stricklandgate House.

Being a trustee means making decisions that will impact on people’s lives. You will be making a difference to your local community by directing a dedicated staff team and a raft of excellent volunteers to support vulnerable adults across the South Lakes. You will help SLM to achieve its aims and there are numerous opportunities to learn new skills in this role.
