We are working in partnership with Andover Mind, the charity started working in the local area in 1984 and now operates Hampshire wide contracts, providing advice, information and support for anyone affected by or at risk of mental health issues as well as people with dementia and their carers. Andover Mind aims to be at the forefront in educating and influencing local communities and partners about Mental Health through collaboration and co-production.

Having grown considerably in the last 10 years, Andover Mind is now seeking to appoint 4 Trustees to enhance and diversify their Board of trustees. The Board provides collective governance leadership of the organisation and the Trustees will play a key role in setting the strategic direction of the organisation and overall policy, defining goals, establishing targets and evaluating performance.

They are looking for enthusiastic individuals who are eager to be part of the next exciting phase of the charity. You will share their passion and ensure that Andover Mind delivers on their vision, mission, and values. They are looking for new trustees with a range of skills and experience, different backgrounds and all walks of life. This might include those with lots of experience or those who may have less and are keen to have their first Board appointment.

Key areas:

  • Fundraising

  • Finance

  • NHS services

  • Social enterprise

  • Digital comms and marketing

  • Lived experience of mental health conditions

  • Corporate governance

  • Supporting young people

The Trustees should be residents of Hampshire and be able to commit themselves to six Board meetings and a range of other sub-committee meetings per annum, along with the research and reading that will support their attendance at these meetings. Board members will serve on a voluntary basis.

We’d love to hear from people from diverse backgrounds, particularly if you're from one or more groups under-represented currently on the trustee board.

We welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds. We do not discriminate on the basis of disability, race, colour, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, age, veteran status, or other category protected by law. These unremunerated roles are open to all.
