Job Description

We are looking for Trustees with experience of Fundraising, Mental Health/Dual Diagnosis and Public Affairs. 

The Clock Tower Sanctuary is the only drop-in day centre for 16-25-year-olds in Brighton & Hove for young people experiencing homelessness. We support young people to access safe and sustainable accommodation and our service integrates health support, life skills and access to education, training and employment; essential factors for all young people to thrive. The input of a strong Board is key to our development, in shaping and defining our strategy and supporting our staff team. The current Board has a robust mix of skills. To help us develop our offer to young people, we are now looking for candidates with specialist experience in mental health; fundraising & public affairs.

The Board meets six times per year: four early-evening meetings and two away-days. These meetings are usually held in person, in Brighton, though Covid has caused us to move all meetings online. The Board has two committees: Finance and Governance & Risk. These committees meet four times per year to look at a range of issues in more detail. We would expect new Trustees to join one of these committees. Dates and times are flexible, based on the attendees’ availability. Trustees are given a full induction and are able to claim reasonable expenses to enable them to carry out their duties.
