Our board of trustees meet three to six times per year in North London. Skyping in is possible.

We support the education of children with hearing impairments in Jinja, Uganda. If you're a people person with enthusiasm for PR and making a big difference to a small charity, then we'd love to hear from you.

What will you be doing?

We are looking to recruit a trustee who can build a cross-platform communications strategy to i) raise awareness of our charity, ii) engage with former, current and future supporters and iii) encourage donations. This means thinking of ideas of how to maintain and build our supporter base via website, newsletter, mail distribution, and social media. Any ideas to help secure a sustainable future for the charity are welcome!

 

Alongside the rest of the board, the communications trustee is a participant in all trustee discussions and decisions.

 

Our board of trustees meet three to six times per year in North London.  We plan fundraising, steer administrative decisions and closely monitor activities and spending to ensure responsible scrutiny of funds. Trustees are paid with tea and excellent biscuits and our costs are minimal, so nearly all the money raised by our generous supporters is directed to our activities.

What are we looking for?

If you are a people person with professional experience of networking and public relations alongside making a big difference to a small charity, then we would really like to hear from you. Ideally a commitment of at least three years would be welcomed.

What difference will you make?

The funds raised promote equal access to education and employment for children and young people with hearing impairments in Jinja District, Uganda. 

For these young people, this support means the difference between gaining an education, fluent communication, opportunities and social relationships, and staying home in isolation, devalued and without language or hope for change. 

What's in it for the volunteer?

Support a great cause while working in a friendly team with excellent biscuits!
