Simon on the Streets is looking for new Trustees to join a fantastic team. 

What does it mean to be a Trustee of Simon on the Streets?

We are a small independent charity that does rely on the Board of Trustees playing an active and engaging role. We do currently have a diverse Board of Trustees but we are looking to add skills and experience in the following areas:

  • Experience of fund application writing and/or access to charitable foundations and grant funding
  • Experience of charity fundraising through events and other income streams
  • Someone with a strong sense of the mission and values of the charity who can support in developing the culture and underpinning the ethos of the charity’s values and mission
  • Some who has charitable sector experience specifically in relation to homelessness, adult mental health, substance abuse or any other area pertinent to the charity
  • An individual with financial experience of financial reporting, forecasting and budgeting and contributing to the future strategy of the Charity
  • Somebody with great social media skills who can support with our marketing and brand strategy

What personal attributes are we looking for?

  • Integrity
  • A commitment to the organisation and its objectives
  • A willingness to devote the necessary time and effort to their duties as a trustee
  • Strategic vision
  • Independent judgment
  • Willingness to speak openly and honestly but also listen to others points of views
  • An ability to work effectively as a member of a team

Visiting Nigel Tooby's Eye Spy Exhibition

On 23rd May, the Simon on the Streets team had the opportunity to visit Nigel Tooby’s Eye Spy exhibition at The Big Conversation, a housing conference by The Gem Programme. Nigel Tooby is an artist in residence for Simon on the Streets, and this exhibition included pieces created in 2014 both for our charity to use in our 2015 calendar and to raise awareness of the plight of our service users.
