Are you committed to improving the lives of children and families; we need you! The Fellowship of St. Nicholas (FSN), established as a registered charity in 1939, aims to provide effective and professional caring action without discrimination and favour for children and young people suffering the effects of poverty, disadvantage, neglect and abuse. FSN is based in St. Leonards on Sea but delivers support services across East Sussex. We have a strong Board of Trustees and are now looking for additional trustees to help us provide more needs led services for our community
FSN’s Board of Trustees play a key role in the growth of the charity, in consultation with the Chief Executive, setting the overall strategic direction and providing scrutiny to their processes and decisions as well as ensuring standards of governance are upheld.
We are looking for new Trustees who are enthusiastic about our work, who think strategically and who can contribute their skills and experience to the development and promotion of this vital work.
We would particularly welcome applications from younger candidates and those from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic (BAME) background as these groups are currently under-represented on the Board.
As a trustee, you will be expected to attend six Board meetings a year, plus an annual Strategy Day. These meetings will usually be held in the St. Nicholas Centre, St. Leonards on Sea on weekdays. You may also be involved in specific areas of work of interest.
The trustee role is unremunerated, although expenses (such as travel for attending required meetings) may be claimed. Board members come from a wide variety of backgrounds bringing with them their experience, skills and expertise to enrich the running of the charity.
