Trustee – Bristol After Stroke

Volunteer Title: Trustee – Bristol After Stroke

Description of the Volunteer Role: Bristol After Stroke is a vibrant independent charity helping people in Bristol, South Gloucestershire and surrounding areas to rebuild their lives after stroke. We provide information, practical support, friendship and counselling in the months and years following a stroke.

We are looking to appoint a new Trustee with a variety of skills, perspectives, and experiences, to join our Board to help us shape our charity’s future. This is an exciting time to be involved in the charity, recently the Charity incorporated, limiting the exposure of our Trustees. We are in the process of agreeing a significant new contract which will secure the future of the organisation for a number of years and so we are looking for someone who is engaged with the cause, energetic and passionate. You will be able to think strategically and practically about the challenges and opportunities the organisation may face, whilst also providing leadership, scrutiny and support.

We are particularly interested to hear from candidates from under-represented groups which would include Asian, Black and other ethnic minority communities. This is particularly relevant because these groups over-index in Stroke occurrence. We also look for more participation from disabled people and young people.

In addition, ideally we are looking to increase the Board’s coverage in the following skills areas:

• Medical/Stroke specific background
• Media influence, reach or connections
• Up to date digital and IT knowledge
• Tax position optimisation
Contact information for applicants: For an application form and a more detailed role description please contact Lucy Stockall, Volunteer Coordinator.

Once you have received this and you would like further information you are welcome to speak to our Chairperson of the Trustees for an informal chat.
