Trustee of the Access to Justice Foundation
The Access to Justice Foundation is the only national charity solely focused on providing funding and support for access to legal advice and representation. We raise funds and distribute them strategically to those advice agencies that can make the most difference to the lives of vulnerable people. The Foundation is seeking trustees to bring additional skills, perspectives and expertise to our work.
We are looking for candidates who share our vision of a society where everyone has access to justice and welcome applications from people based across the UK. Although board meetings are held in London, reasonable expenses are reimbursed and there are opportunities to attend some meetings remotely.
We are looking to fill two to four vacancies, including those with one or more of the following:
- A professional accountancy qualification and recent, relevant financial experience.
- Experience of grant making at board or executive level.
- Experience and an understanding of the free legal advice sector.
These rewarding and stimulating roles will require a time commitment of around ten days a year and are unremunerated.
We are particularly keen to ensure that our trustee board reflects the diverse nature of the communities we support. We encourage applications from everyone regardless of age, disability, gender, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation.
Please see the information pack for more details of how to apply.
