Action East Devon is a small-medium sized charity and registered company delivering wellbeing and mental health services across East Devon – with our new CEO and a small but skilled Board of Trustees, we are seeking one or two Trustees to help us build back after the pandemic and to grow, help us respond to the increasing demands on us and successfully implement our ambitious fundraising strategy to identify sources of support to enable us to meet demands from our community.
As a relatively small charity we are open and welcoming. Our aim is to make incoming Trustees enjoy their role and to gain personal satisfaction from their participation – can you be this person to help Action East Devon grow and succeed, helping the residents of East Devon?
