Become a Trustee 

We are looking for new Trustees to join our established Board. Bedfordshire Open Door has been established for over 25 years and is highly regarded in the local community for the positive impact it has on the lives of young people.  We are looking for individuals with motivation and enthusiasm. We embrace diversity and welcome applications from all sectors of the community. We are also actively seeking younger trustees (18+) to ensure we embed the perspective, views, and experiences of young people.

The Board of Trustees holds an Annual General Meeting and meets at least four times per annum.

“A trustee’s role in a charity is to be the ‘guardians of purpose’, making sure that all decisions put the needs of the beneficiaries first. They safeguard the charity’s assets – both physical assets, including property, and intangible ones, such as its reputation. They make sure these are used well and that the charity is run sustainably.” Reach Volunteering 2020

Charity trustees play a very important role in making sure that the charity is run in the interests of the people it is there to support. They strategically oversee the management and administration of the organisation. Being a trustee can be very rewarding. As a trustee you will part of the Bedfordshire Open Door team and will have the opportunity to use your expertise and experience to develop the organisation and support the team.
