Our main aim is to improve lives one smile at a time.

Hearts & Minds is looking to appoint a dynamic Chair with previous board or committee experience, to help steer us towards our 5-year goals. They will work alongside the Board to support Hearts & Minds key-staff to continue to raise the profile of the organisation whilst ensuring that an effective fundraising strategy and correct financial safeguards are on place to support the charity’s work.
