In the UK, a charity trustee is a volunteer who has legal responsibility for overseeing and managing a charity. Trustees are responsible for making sure the charity is well run, its money is properly managed, and it is achieving its charitable objectives. Trustees are accountable to the charity’s beneficiaries, its donors, and the wider public. Trustee duties include setting strategy, monitoring performance, ensuring compliance with legal and regulatory requirements, and making sure the charity’s resources are used effectively to further its charitable purposes.

We are now looking for able and motivated individuals to join our Board of Trustees, to help lead and guide our important work. Mainly, we are looking for people who are excited by the work Pseudomyxoma Survivor does, share our values and will play an active part in the work of our Board. Is this you?
My first event was on a conference stand in Paris for two days, when I tried very hard to avoid saying “pseudomyxoma” as I did not know how to pronounce it!
This is a great opportunity to gain experience in a very small charity and develop your existing skills and learn new ones.
