Role Description

Advice Space has its 60th anniversary this year and as a charity we are governed by a Board of Trustees who possess various key skills necessary to help guide and drive us forward.

Each year from Sept. 2024/25 we aim to hold 4-6 Board meetings (Usually 5pm to 6.30pm or 7.00pm on a Tuesday). These may alternate between online and in-person and although we have an AGM annually and review Board membership regularly a full term of office would normally be for up to 3 years (which can be renewed for a further term). The position is voluntary though any out-of-pocket expenses such as travel for a meeting/event can be claimed and paid.
