Become a Trustee at Inspire Hounslow

Inspire Hounslow has supported a number of great charities in the Borough, but we want to help more – can you help us?

We have a remit to provide charitable services to people who live, work or study within the London Borough of Hounslow. There is presently a Board of seven Trustees, who have decided that the charity’s current activities should primarily, though not exclusively, be directed towards helping disadvantaged young people. The current Trustees come from all walks of life and have a shared interest in using their skills to help in the local community. We are seeking to recruit additional Trustees from all the diverse communities of Hounslow who will help us to implement our strategy and to ensure good governance of our charity. The trustees normally meet monthly on a weekday evening and may also discuss issues between meetings.

The main requirement is that Trustees should have a good appreciation of the Hounslow community, related to employment, education, sport or leisure. This probably means you already live or work or study within the Borough. In addition, we would particularly welcome people with experience in marketing, social media, finance, legal, or grant giving. We also welcome enquiries from those who are interested in our goals but who may not have been a Charity Trustee before.

If you are interested in finding out more about what being a Trustee involves, please email info@inspirehounslow.co.uk.

We will arrange a time which suits you to speak to one of the existing Trustees and find out if this may be a role which suits you. Following that discussion, we will send you an application form.

The existing Trustees will use your response on this form to assess the skills, experience and interests you will be able to bring to the role. It will help the us if you can be as specific as possible about these and what your reasons are for wanting to become a Trustee.

We are also looking for volunteers who wish to contribute to our mission but not as a Trustee. If you can offer time to bring expertise in marketing, social media or another specialism to help us grow, please also email info@inspirehounslow.co.uk.
