We work with young people across Worcestershire who have multiple and complex needs whilst striving to live independently. The Treasurer will bring financial skills and experience to the role of trustee and our active board.

Charity board experience is desirable for all Trustee roles, but not as important a desire to make a positive contribution to the lives of young people.

Trustees are encouraged to attend board meetings 6 times per year on Mondays at 5pm.
