Could you be our next Trustee?

Established in 1996, Daisy’s Dream is a charity that supports children and young people who have been affected by the bereavement or serious illness of someone close to them. We are a small, locally based organisation with big ambitions and as a member of our Trustee Board you are able to make a huge difference to the many children that require our support each year.

We’re looking to recruit two new Trustees to join our board as our charity enters an exciting phase of innovation and growth.

Why apply?

We are a small charity with eight Trustees and fifteen members of staff, who are all committed to the future success of Daisy’s Dream.

The role of the Trustee, which is wholly voluntary (not remunerated), is to ensure the financial viability of the charity, manage the risks and develop the strategy.  Trustees meet quarterly at our offices, currently in Twyford from 6.30 – 8.30pm. It is also possible to attend meetings virtually for some of the time. Trustees are invited to be involved in supporting our team across a range of functions within the charity and we would welcome conversations around this.  

What are we looking for?

Daisy’s Dream is looking for Trustees from a range of backgrounds and is committed to a diverse and inclusive board.

New Trustees will join a high performing and hard-working board and will be keen to increase the profile of our stakeholders on the board.  Ideally they will have experience/a background in one of the following areas:

  • Social care or nursing
  • Education
  • Financial
  • Local commercial experience (business network)

If you would like to join Daisy’s Dream as a Trustee, please send a short (no longer than one page) letter explaining your interest, together with your CV, to Laura Lewis, CEO, at [email protected]  by 31st March 2023.
