Suffolk Mind to recruit new volunteer trustees
Suffolk Mind is recruiting new trustee volunteers to govern the organisation and help make Suffolk the best place in the world for talking about and taking care of mental health.
Suffolk Mind are currently diversifying and growing their income, making the most of the prestigious Heritage and Wellbeing Centre, Quay Place in Ipswich, and finding ways to enable as many people as possible, right across the county, to look after themselves and others around them.
A trustee at Suffolk Mind is responsible for the governance of the organisation, the delivery of safe and high quality services and keeping financial accounts, and safeguarding the assets of the charity.
Nigel Suckling, Chair of trustees said: “It’s an exciting time to join Suffolk Mind; we are looking for people who understand our ambition for the future and will be as excited as us about the potential we see ahead. Our Board is committed to ensuring that we stay at the forefront of best practice of strong and effective governance.
“No specific qualifications are required to be a trustee but you should have relevant expertise or experience which will enable you to make a positive contribution to the work of our board”.
During 2017-2018 Suffolk Mind delivered services to over 1100 people in Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. The organisation works right across the continuum, from well being to ‘severe and enduring’ mental ill health, providing support and information for everyone.
A drop-in recruitment afternoon will be held between 3pm and 7pm on 11th October, for people to find out more about becoming a trustee at Suffolk Mind.
