Join our friendly and hardworking team of Trustees

Trustee / Committee volunteers needed for Elizabeth Fry Charity in RG1

Trustees, both individually and acting together as the Board, use their skills, knowledge, expertise and contacts to govern the Charity, safeguard its assets and apply them as efficiently and effectively as possible to further its charitable objectives.

We are interested in hearing from anyone who is passionate about the work we do and feels they can contribute to the success of the Charity.

The Board of Trustees meet every two months (usually on a Tuesday evening). There are three committees (Finance, Personnel & Safeguarding and Buildings, Health & Safety) which Trustees can join and which meet four to six times per year. Trustees also undertake a number of announced and unannounced visits to the Approved Premises during the year.
