Join the Swindon Down’s syndrome Group board of trustees in 2020

Are you enthusiastic and passionate about supporting people with Down’s syndrome? 

We are inviting members who would like to be one of our charity trustees to submit an application. 

Being a trustee is about engaging with our members, attending monthly meetings, organising and supporting events as well as lots of other little tasks to do with the day-to-day running of the charity.

We are governed by a board which comprises up to 10 Trustees, including the Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Vice-Treasurer. 

If you’ve got specific skills or experience you can bring – perhaps you’re an excellent events organiser or fabulous fundraiser; you like to support new parents or raise awareness in the local community.

If this is you or you know someone who fits the bill and would make an outstanding trustee for the Swindon Down’s Syndrome Group – applications close on 31 January 2020.
