Making Space Trustees play a pivotal role in shaping, influencing and overseeing the direction of the charity. The impact of gaining new trustees will strengthen the board, add new ideas and fresh skills to the organisation.

We know, because our current and past trustees tell us, that trustees finds a way in to supporting the charity and contributing towards its strategic development, bringing in key skills and experiences. Every trustee offers something unique and brings this to the fore, which in turn they find rewarding and motivating. As the board membership has a maximum of 12 members, it also means that everyone feels the directly benefit of their effort - be it in board meetings to attending key meetings with the Director to talk with funders or helping out at an event and talking with people who benefit from the activities we offer.
