Become a Trustee


In the tough, hands-on work that we do, one of the greatest senses of achievement our volunteers feel is satisfaction. Satisfaction at truly helping to improve the situations of those most in need.

As a Trustee, your skills, experience and ideas can be the building blocks which form sure and steady foundations for young people now and as they grow older and start to play their part in the wider world.

We welcome Trustee applications from people of all walks of life; in fact, we insist on it. We ask for approximately one day a month minimum and a commitment to improving the lives of the most challenged.
