We are looking for new trustees to help steer us through the next exciting stage of our development, as we increase our support of LGBT+ young people regionally and nationally.

Trustees are responsible for the strategic direction of the charity.

In particular, we are looking for up to four people who have experience of:
● Leadership
● Business development and entrepreneurship
● Finance (for this we are seeking one person to take over from our current treasurer, ideally someone with a relevant qualification e.g. CA, CIMA, ACCA)

We would particularly encourage you to apply if you are trans or non-binary, bisexual, Black, a Person of Colour or BAME and/or living with a disability.

Trustees give around three to five hours a month, with out of pocket and travel expenses paid by the charity.

Please email trustees@theproudtrust.org, or visit https://www.theproudtrust.org/about-us-news-views/our-trustees/ for an information pack.

We recognise many people who would be really good trustees might not see themselves in the role or might feel lacking in confidence to apply. If you have a passion to support young people and transferable skills, we are keen to hear from you.

The importance of the ‘S’ in ‘ESG’
In this episode, Lauren Weymouth is joined by Ketan Patel, equities fund manager at EdenTree, to delve into the issue of social investment and why that all-important ‘S’ in ESG is more relevant now than ever before. The social element of ESG often gets forgotten when thinking about investing in more ethical and sustainable ways. But, after a challenging year for all areas of society, social injustice has been highlighted, and there’s a much greater need for charities to put people at the heart of their investment decisions.

What does the future of civil society look like post-pandemic?
In this episode of the Charity Times Leadership Podcast, Lauren Weymouth chats to Dame Julia Unwin, the chair of the Inquiry into the Future of Civil Society about what the future has in store for the charity sector. When it launched in 2018, the inquiry found issues around power, trust and connection within the charity sector. But do these issues still remain? And how has Covid accelerated the pace of change that was required?
