becoming a trustee
What we require
From time to time the Charity seeks applications for Trustees from the range of occupations within the trade, including pubs, breweries, clubs and other suppliers of alcohol. We need Trustees who can assume specific responsibilities in the areas of Fundraising and Support & Care provision in addition to the fundamental Trustee role.
To contribute to this area, Trustees must have a broad understanding of the trade and good relationships within it. We are always seeking to develop new ways of gaining support from individuals and organisations within the trade.
Support and Care
The Charity’s aim is to provide support when needed. Recently we have provided help on-line with information booklets on common issues facing people in the industry. The challenge is to anticipate the problems or areas of need so that we can be ready to respond. The Support and Care Committee, headed by a Trustee, rises to this challenge and assesses all applications for assistance.
