Our mission is to build strong communities where everyone enjoys good health, resilience, and opportunity. We deliver a wide range of innovative services targeting disadvantaged groups, aiming for early intervention, community-driven solutions, and lifelong support from birth through active ageing. Our services include the pioneering Dahlia psychotherapeutic service for survivors of FGM, the award-winning Islington Food Partnership working to achieve a sustainable local food system, and a multilingual and culturally competent advocacy service promoting equal access to health and wellbeing for all.

About Manor Gardens Welfare Trust Founded over a century ago, MGWT has evolved to meet the changing needs of our community, providing advocacy, wellbeing services, youth engagement, culturally competent therapies, and food support services. We are committed to creating an inclusive environment where diversity is celebrated, and everyone has the chance to thrive.

The Role We're seeking a trustee with fundraising expertise to help guide MGWT's strategic direction, inform our development and ensure we continue to meet our legal and financial responsibilities. This is a chance to contribute around 6 hours per month to a cause that makes a tangible difference in people's lives. The role offers an opportunity to be part of a team that values equality, diversity, and inclusion, and works together to enhance the charity's impact and reach.

  • Skills and Experience: Strong background in fundraising, strategic planning, and effective communication.
  • Knowledge: Familiarity with the legal duties, responsibilities, and liabilities of trusteeship.
  • Qualities and Behaviours: Passionate about MGWT's vision, with a collaborative spirit, integrity, and the commitment to devote the necessary time and effort.

Why Join Us? Becoming a trustee with MGWT offers the unique opportunity to support and steer the direction of a charity that has been a cornerstone of community support for over a century. You'll play a crucial role in ensuring that we continue to provide vital services to those who need them most, helping to foster a community where everyone has the opportunity to lead healthy, fulfilling lives.
