We have just started working with Citizens Advice Mendip, a charity that covers a population of approximately 110,000 from the Frome area across to Street. In the past year, 1 in 7 households in the area have used their well-known advice services. At present, more than 70 volunteers make the work of Citizens Advice Mendip possible. Almost half of their clients have disabilities or long term health conditions and the advice they provide is essential to supporting families in the Mendip area.

We are looking for someone who has a strong social conscience and understanding of the importance of the role that Citizens Advice plays in the lives of its clients and the contribution it makes to communities.

The ideal person will demonstrate an understanding of the strategic aspect of the role of a Trustee and will have the ability to lead the Board and develop the governance of the charity in a positive way.  It is important to understand the charitable ethos of the organisation and how their funding works together with the importance and value of diversity.
