We are looking to recruit trustees who bring an interest and/or expertise in:
• how policy change happens, at either a local or a national level
• the underlying causes of poverty and inequality in the North East
• the role of individuals, communities, voluntary, public and business sector organisations in bringing about change
• how local, regional and national infrastructure and networks operate

We particularly welcome candidates from Black and minority ethnic backgrounds, and candidates with experience of disability and accessibility issues, as these experiences are currently under-represented on the Board.

The Board meets three times a year and there are opportunities to visit our Strategic Partners and engage with other trusts and foundations via our membership of the Association of Charitable Foundations. A full induction programme will be provided. Mentoring is also available if this would be your first trusteeship.

If you would like to apply, please send us your CV with a covering letter explaining why you want to join the MHF Board to cullagh@mhfdn.org.uk

For an informal chat about what the role involves, please email the Trust Manager to arrange a convenient time.
