Growing Well Trustees

Growing Well is seeking to recruit at least two experienced trustees who can lead the organisation through its transformation from single site to group status. Our new board of trustees will continue to build on the brilliant work already done to strengthen our governance and shape our strategic direction.

We are particularly interested in receiving applications from individuals with experience of:

  • Mental health services – governance, management and networks
  • NHS – commissioning, governance and networks
  • West Cumbria – business networks and nuclear supply chain

Recognising the diversity that a strong board of trustees needs, we would very much also welcome expressions of interest from anyone offering the commitment, aptitudes and values outlined below.

In return for this voluntary role, you will gain the extremely rewarding experience that charity trusteeship can offer, including leadership, governance and strategic input, as well as the satisfaction of supporting a vibrant charity with a wonderful cause.

Lived experience is at the very heart of our work, so we welcome applications from anyone who has lived, or is living, with mental ill health themselves, as well as any individuals from marginalised or under-represented communities.

We will be accepting applications throughout July and August until 4pm on Friday 30th August 2024, and interviews will take place in September.

All applicants will have the chance to come to Growing Well and see our site.
