All We Can (Methodist development & relief organisation) seeks new Trustees
Could you help us fulfil potential as a Trustee? The Board of Trustees of All We Can is currently seeking trustees for a variety of roles focused on finance, our partnership and programmatic work as well as public engagement and general governance. Your contribution will help have a direct impact on our transformational work to end poverty and injustice all around the world. As part of the Board of Trustee’s, you will help govern All We Can in line with its charitable objectives and to maintain oversight of the organisation’s financial affairs on behalf of the Board.
All We Can is an international development and relief organisation. It is the relief and development agency of the Methodist Church and its vision, priorities and values are grounded in Christian principles. It helps people in the world’s poorest communities to become all that they can, by investing in partnerships that improve quality of life and create positive, long-term change for individuals, families and nations. It also provides emergency support in humanitarian crises, and challenges the causes of poverty, inequality and injustice and promotes solutions through engaging in education and advocacy, both in the UK and internationally.
All We Can has ambitious plans for the future, and is near to the beginning of development of a new 5 year strategy. To support this, the organisation’s governance also needs to be highly effective and far sighted in outlook and to provide the right balance between challenge, championing and support.
Candidates will need to be able to commit at least 5 half day meetings a year and 1 full day meeting a year which includes 3 daytime Board meetings in London and extra committee meetings either in person or by video conference. Trustees are all volunteers, though expenses are met. We are keen to receive expressions of interest from people from a range of backgrounds, to ensure the Board continues to have a diverse ethnic, gender and age profile.
