We are looking for Charity Trustees

All charities have boards of voluntary trustees who are tasked with helping to drive the charity forward to improve.

Manchester Settlement has a strong board of trustees, some people have been with us a long time, and others less so, but all are comittted to using their skills and connections to further our charitable work.

A rare opportunity has arisen for new people to join our board of trustees, and we are promoting this with people who are connected to our charity in some way, either as parents of children, or as members of the local community.

What you get back
