We are seeking people who can expand the insights brought to our Board of Trustees through their life experience and understanding of our service users.

We are particularly wanting to recruit people with an interest in:
•    Joining our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Working Group
•    Helping us drive our IT strategy forward.

Impact Initiatives is an innovative, respected, and long-standing charity which has flexed and developed alongside changing needs over its forty+ years. We currently work with over 10,000 people across Sussex each year, have 90+ staff and a turnover of just over £3,000,000.

We live by and deliver all our services within our values of collaboration, integrity, empowerment, effectiveness, creativity and accountability.


•    A commitment to the aims and values of the organisation, and an understanding of some of the issues our service users face.
•    An ability to understand and discuss information on the work of the organisation.
•    An ability and willingness to discuss ideas and options to help make decisions in the best interests of the organisation and its service users.
•    Experience of attending and contributing to meetings is helpful but not essential, enthusiasm and commitment to our work and values are more important.
•    Trustees must be aged 18+.


  • Being a trustee is a great way to support a cause you believe in.
  • As a respected and responsible role, it is also a brilliant route to develop new skills, gain more experience and enhance your CV.
