Hours: There isn’t a fixed amount of hours for this role, but there’s an expectation you’ll attend our six Trustee Board meetings each year

Type of role: Voluntary, no pay is associated with this role. Expenses are payable for travel, accommodation, etc.
MAP supports thousands of young people in Norfolk each year by providing free and independent advice, counselling, youth work and education. Our team of staff and volunteers have grown in recent years to provide these essential services, and we’re now looking for individuals to join our Trustee Board to assist us with the project going forward.
You’ll be joining a team of six trustees, each with their own interest and expertise to bring to our board. You might not have thought about being a trustee before, but we’re looking for fresh perspectives and new ideas to bring to the board. Whether you’re a young person yourself who wouldn’t think of themselves as a trustee, work in completely different sector, or just haven’t thought about being a trustee before, we’d love to hear from you.
You’ll be overseeing and directing our strategic plans and helping us to meet our objectives and obligations. As a charity, we’re passionate about our values, which we’d hope you would be too. These are:
- Being Young Person Centred
- Valuing Each Individual
- Being Professional
- Working for Social Justice
It’s our mission to help all young people in Norfolk know what it is to be valued, and to ensure they have access to all the support and information to make a successful transition into adulthood. The role of Trustee is integral to this mission, and the knowledge, experiences and insight you could bring can make a huge difference to lives of young people in Norfolk now.
Over the course of each year, we’d expect you to contribute your time to attend up to six Trustee Board meetings each year. There are further opportunities for other activities and duties related to the role of Trustee, including working with sub-groups of the board, however this is down to each individual and their interest.
The role of Trustee is overseen by The Charity Commission. In 2018, the Commission updated their guidelines on what might disqualify a person from becoming a Trustee. To find out more, click here to view the Government’s guide for individuals.
We’re seeking a diverse range of applications to reflect our work with a diverse range of young people. We’re an equal opportunities organisation, committed to increasing our diversity and representation.
If you think you have the time, passion and enthusiasm to join us on our journey, we’d love to hear from you.
