Health and well-being charity seeking new trustees

Health and well-being charity seeking new trustees

Anglian Community Trust (ACT) was formed in 2014 to ‘promote and protect the social, mental and physical health, welfare and well-being of people in the community of North East Essex, and surrounding areas’. Since that time ACT has distributed around £500,000 in donations to local charities and community groups.
ACT is seeking to strengthen its Board through the recruitment of Trustees who will bring a complementary set of skills and knowledge alongside a commitment to reducing inequalities and improving health and wellbeing. We would particularly like to hear from applicants with legal, financial, fund-raising, commercial, population health, marketing and communication skills and we encourage applicants with those skills who also represent our diverse ethnic communities, disability, age and gender positive groups.
In the summer of 2021, ACT expects to receive a sizeable donation. The newly constituted board of trustees will have the opportunity to make some exciting decisions about how this funding can be used to make a real difference to the health and wellbeing of communities in and around North East Essex; both by supporting impactful projects/services and by identifying further investment and fund-raising opportunities.
As well as ensuring the good governance of the charity, the Board of Trustees will work actively to promote ACT’s objects and to maximise impact on reducing inequalities and improving wellbeing.
Do you feel you could offer your experience and skills needed and be a voice for your local community and an ACT Trustee? This is a great opportunity to be part of shaping and developing the direction of the Charity. We encourage and welcome applicants from currently under represented groups and with a variety of diverse backgrounds, interests and experiences who are committed to improving our local communities and enhancing people’s lives.
If you would like to apply, please contact us for an information pack by emailing jyoung8@nhs.net The closing date for applications will be 5pm on Thursday 27th May 2021, interviews will be held on Wednesday 9th June 2021.
