Can you help? Use Your Skills to be a Trustee with Surrey Lifelong Learning Partnership.
Everyone has skills, and we need yours to help us oversee an inspiring local charity which works with disadvantaged people to enrich their lives and to make them more employable.
The Surrey Lifelong Learning Partnership offers work experience, training and careers advice. Each year, we help up to 800 people from 14 to 50+ to reach their goals. And we do this in the communities where these people live.
One of our best-known projects is refurbishing bikes as a not-for-profit business using abandoned cycles, and another is creating teams to refresh gardens. We have had fantastic success helping people onto a career path, and our work has been visited and praised by HRH Prince Edward Duke of Edinburgh.
Now we need more trustees to watch over and steer the work, alongside the Board and the Chief Executive. We are a friendly team with a range of existing skills but we’d love to have more. In particular, we’re keen to meet people with financial or legal experience, or who understand marketing, or who are able to work across a range of partners, or perhaps have had contact with older learners or school-age learners.
Being a trustee is a volunteer role, though we can provide expenses, and it’s a great way of giving something back to the community. We ask for 4 meetings a year as a minimum commitment, but most of us are inspired to do more once we get involved.
