Grant Making Trust seeks Voluntary Trustees

Miss Agnes H Hunter’s Trust provides grants to registered charities that:

· help disabled people

· assist with the education and training of disadvantaged people aged 16 years or over

The Trust has an annual grants programme of around £400,000 a year.

The charity is looking to recruit two new Trustees to join the current Board, replacing two retiring members. In a voluntary capacity, these Trustees will attend all Board meetings in Edinburgh (typically 4-5/yr) and serve for a 5-year term, renewable for 3 years.

This is an exciting opportunity for candidates to assist in the progression of the Trust and the grant award process, and the Board is keen to develop its diverse representation.

In particular, the Trust is seeking candidates with experience in:

· legal matters, preferably in charity law

· the voluntary sector, particularly those who have lived experience and/or involvement in service delivery
