Compassion Acts is a local Christian charity anti-poverty charity. It is dynamic and growing, responding to needs within our local community.

Trustees are volunteers who serve our local communities, those in need, local churches, volunteers and staff.  We do this by committing to the mission, supporting and enabling the work, making strategic decisions and celebrating the achievements of the organisation.

What’s involved: The role is for 3 years in the first instance, with the option for renewal. As well as attending Board meetings 6 times a year, you will use your expertise and skills to work with the management team to guide in specific aspects of development. We invite interest from all and would particularly welcome experience in Business, Strategic Planning, Human Resources, social marketing and building management to balance the skills of current trustees.
