Have you considered a rewarding role as a trustee?

Young Melksham is a small local charity working with children, young people and their families in Melksham and the surrounding areas.

Our trustees are all volunteers made up from across the community, including some in the teaching profession and others who have different skills and talents they use to support our work. Our mission is to work as a community to provide all children and young people with opportunities to thrive, develop and participate

As a trustee, you will be responsible for the running of the charity and overseeing the employment of staff, volunteers and finances. We are looking to expand the number of our trustees to ensure that we have the skills, knowledge enthusiasm and commitment to help us develop the charity and provide real opportunities for the children and young people in the Melksham area.

Candidates from all backgrounds are welcome; we are particularly interested in recruiting trustees who have a corporate/business background with experience in fundraising, finance, marketing or working with children and young people.

We are looking for someone who can:

  • expand on our existing fundraising methods
  • build relationships with potential corporate and business donors
  • network and gain support for the charity and its cause
  • demonstrate enthusiasm and have an interest in working with children and young people
  • take an active role in the organisation
