Salary:     Real London Living Wage
Hours:      Part time - fixed for 12 months contact for details

Closing Date 31 January 2022, @midday

Role:
As a service user trustee, you will have lived experience of a mental health issue or a learning disability. You will have used mental health or learning disability services – either theirs , or similar services run by other organisations. You need to have an understanding of advocacy and a passion for helping The Advocacy Project be the best it can be – but you don’t need to have previous experience of charity governance.

They currently have two service user trustees, who play a key role on the board and make an essential contribution to discussions and decision-making.  You will be given a full induction, with a ‘good trustee guide’ in easy read format if you would find that helpful. You will be mentored by the existing service user trustees as you build your experience of being a trustee. For each board discussion, they will give you information in a format that’s accessible for you, and support you to prepare ahead of each meeting. In all our meetings, they make sure everyone uses straight-forward language to explain their points – because that helps all of us make better decisions.
