We are looking for capable and suitably qualified individuals to join our Board of Trustees. Applications from all sections of the LGBT community (and beyond) are welcome, with notes of interest with those who have background/experience in employment law, human resources, third sector management and marketing/communications/PR welcome. We would particularly appreciate interest from suitably qualified individuals based in the west of Scotland.

The organisation

LGBT Health and Wellbeing exists to promote the health and wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in Scotland. The organisation provides a varied programme of services, events, courses and groups, mostly delivered from its centrally located Edinburgh base, although it is increasingly delivering services across Scotland – including the establishment of our ground breaking LGBT Age Service in Glasgow. Current initiatives are focused on mental health, community development, transition support, the older LGBT community, information provision and advocacy services.

The Board

The Board of Trustees is responsible for the organisation’s strategic direction, good governance and financial sustainability in line with charitable objectives. The Board meets regularly both in plenary and through subcommittees progressing our various priorities. The minimum time commitment of a Trustee is in the region of 5 hours per month.
