  • To attend board meetings – every other month, usually in central London, in person or via video link. You will be expected to read and contribute to board papers and minutes ahead of each meeting. The meetings are participatory: we want you to bring perspective and experience to our collective decisions.
  • To be active between meetings – we are a ‘doing’ board. Each trustee is expected take on tasks and activities at meetings, and to actively pursue them in collaboration with the rest of the board.
  • To provide content – we expect all board members to contribute to newsletters, write pieces for our website, and enhance our social media feeds.
