We are looking for new trustees
to join our board
Cardiff Foodbank is recruiting for a number of voluntary trustee positions to join and enhance our current Board of Trustees.
At Cardiff Foodbank, we don’t think that anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. Along with The Trussell Trust, we have a vision for a community without the need for Foodbanks.
Cardiff Foodbank distributes emergency food parcels to individuals and families in Cardiff who are in crisis in their lives, whatever the cause. We are also developing our services in partnership with other organisations in the city to provide additional support as well as food. Working in partnership is a key priority for Cardiff Foodbank, as we try to move beyond food to a more integrated approach which addresses root causes as well as immediate need.
We are looking for people who are passionate about the issue of food poverty and its alleviation in Cardiff, to join our Board of Trustees. Whether or not you have previous experience as a Trustee, if you have the skills, passion and availability to be a part of the team, we would love to hear from you.
As a Trustee with Cardiff Foodbank you will have
- Induction and Training
- Opportunities to contribute to strategic decisions and develop new skills
- The ability to shape innovative projects
- The chance to improve the health and wellbeing of the local community
- The opportunity to use your skills and experiences to benefit others
The expected time commitment is four formal trustee meetings per year, plus a contribution to specific projects or work packages, typically for 6 hours per month.
If you are interested in applying, we are holding a drop-in session for applicants on Monday 18th July from 12.30-2pm. You’ll get a chance to see the foodbank warehouse and talk to staff, trustees and volunteers. Please let [email protected] know if you’d like to come along.
To apply, please download and complete our application form.
Closing Date for applications: Monday 25th July
