Job Title - Trustee

  • Job Type - Governance - leadership - Trusteeship - Mental health
  • Location - Herefordshire
  • Salary - Voluntary position
  • Date Advertised - 12/06/2018 00:00:00



Herefordshire Mind is the largest specialist voluntary sector mental health organisation in Herefordshire, with a turnover of £1 million and 50 staff working across three locations. We have 40 years’ experience of working to improve people’s mental health and wellbeing and we won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets both support and respect.

Our mission is to provide quality support, whilst raising awareness and promoting understanding about mental health issues. With this in mind, we provide empowering community based support, education and outreach, residential and housing services.

The challenge

Having endured savage cuts to commissioned services, our strategic focus is to rebuild our portfolio of services through fundraising, income from our nursing/residential services and building a stronger volunteer base. We are committed to securing a sustainable future for the organisation in order to continue serving our community for many years to come.

The role of Trustees

As Trustees, we work with management to determine the strategic direction of the charity, and promoting its vision, mission and values.  We are responsible for ensuring that the services that Herefordshire Mind provides are of the highest quality. 

We are a small, well established team and are seeking three new recruits to join us. Two of these positions are to succeed current Trustees; we’re looking for people with professional backgrounds in either Finance or Human Resources to fill these roles. We’re also looking for someone with experience in grant applications and/or fund-raising to expand our skill-set. We particularly welcome applications from candidates with lived experience of mental health problems.


Making a difference

As a team, we presently combine expertise in mental health, finance, HR, and commissioning and experience of working in the private, public and third sectors. Our role is primarily governance-based, but given the scope of Herefordshire Mind’s activities, there is plenty of opportunity to get actively involved in specific areas. 

We each get more closely involved in the leadership of the organisation when our particular expertise would be useful. The Trustee who is in finance liaises with external auditors and investors; the Trustee who is an HR consultant provides guidance on HR policies and practice; the Trustee with a background in mental health services takes the lead in developing our service strategy; and the Trustee with a background in commissioning helps us to navigate our way through the complexity of this environment.

Meetings and time commitment

The Board of Trustees meets once a month for 2 hours.  We aim to alternate meetings between face-to-face meetings in Hereford and conference calls.  In between, we communicate by email to progress issues.

To apply contact:

 or call Mark Waller, Chair of Trustees on 07468429291
