Join us as a Trustee: An Opportunity to Make a DifferenceSonia
Are you looking to make an impact in the lives of young people?
Are you passionate about supporting young people towards leading an independent and settled life?
If your answer is yes, then we’re inviting you to join us at Doorstep as a new trustee as we enter National Trustees’ Week starting Monday 6th November.
What It Means to Be a Trustee
Becoming a charity trustee is a position of significant responsibility and impact. As a trustee, you play a vital role in the governance and oversight of a charitable organisation, ensuring it adheres to its mission, serves the public, and operates with integrity.
As a trustee, you will apply your existing skills and learn new ones, while leveraging your personal and professional experiences to make a difference. For Doorstep, this means making a tangible difference to the lives of young people experiencing homelessness.
The Legal Aspect
The Charity Commission for England and Wales has issued guidance on the legal duties of a trustee. These duties represent the things you must do as a trustee. They are:
- Ensure your charity is carrying out its purposes for the public benefit
- Comply with your charity’s governing document and the law
- Act in your charity’s best interests
- Manage your charity’s resources responsibly
- Act with reasonable care and skill
- Ensure your charity is accountable
What We Are Looking For
We’re looking for people who can bring relevant experience to help deliver our organisational objectives. We are specifically searching for those individuals who have specialist knowledge in housing, social businesses or have a legal background.
Experience and skills in finance, fundraising, housing and marketing would be advantageous to help us reach our goals. Most importantly, we are looking for people who resonate with passion and our charitable objective of supporting young people experiencing homelessness.
If you believe you have what it takes to be a trustee, and are passionate about making a difference, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
