Leeds Community Foundation is looking for Trustees and Subcommittee members to help them achieve their mission of creating positive change in the communities of Leeds that need it most.We have a lot to be proud about in Leeds: a vibrant historic city, full of opportunity, thriving industry, good schools and universities, and beautiful parks. However, not everyone has access to these opportunities. 23% of our young people live in poverty. Those living in some inner city areas live 10 years less than their wealthier neighbours. 15,000 of our residents over 60 years of age are intensely lonely, often having no human contact from week to week.
Thousands of charities and voluntary groups across the city work tirelessly to address these inequalities and help their communities. Leeds Community Foundation invests in these groups to support Leeds, now and in the future. We do this by distributing grants, convening debates, sharing advice: we are a catalyst for positive change in Leeds.
We are looking for people to join our committed board of trustees and/or our three subcommittees (Grants & Programmes; Development & Marketing; and Finance, Audit & Governance), to help us achieve our vision of creating a city of opportunity for all.
