It’s easy and rewarding to become a Trustee. Here are a few frequently asked questions.
The following are the main responsibilities of our Trustees:
SASBAH Trustees meet every two months, for about two hours. In addition, Trustees are members of one or more sub-Committees (eg Social, Finance, Personnel, etc), which meet once every two or three months.
It is expected that each Trustee will also wish to be involved in a few activities so that s/he gets to fully understand the work of the charity.
Trustees must be over 18 years old, and not convicted of dishonesty or bankrupt. SASBAH looks to recruit people with a wide range of interests, abilities and experience. A significant proportion of Trustees are themselves service users who have spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus. This is important so that the Trustee Board fully understands the needs of those with the conditions, especially what support services are necessary and appropriate.
In addition, Trustees should have one or more of the following:
Yes. All Trustees receive a full induction to the charity, its services, its people, and the way the organisation works. This will be suited to the new Trustee’s experience and knowledge.
SASBAH is open at all times to enquiries for those wishing to become a Trustee, or who would like further information. Please contact the Chief Executive Officer in the first instance at the SASBAH office on 01825 873045, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are also opportunities for people to join the Board of Directors of Saspire Ltd, the social enterprise which is a wholly owned subsidiary of SASBAH. If you have particular experience, either in business or through involvement with social enterprises, we would love to hear from you. Please contact the SASBAH CEO in the first instance for more information.
