Become a Trustee or Secretary for Peer Action

Peer Action Trustees and Secretary Positions        

Peer Action is a Brighton and Hove based charity with the sole aim of making a difference to the lives of people living with HIV and those who care for them. We offer support for everyone affected by HIV and offer regular yoga and therapy days together with popular swimming and social activities, exclusive visits to museum exhibitions and some beautiful historic houses and gardens. We focus on our charity work and we are working hard to stop others feeling isolated or out of touch.

We are looking to appoint trustees to join our enthusiastic board. Joining us you will be a team player and demonstrate a real commitment, integrity and responsibility in a professional way to the charity. Appropriate conduct is an essential requirement.

As a Trustee you will be responsible as part of the board for the overall governance and strategic direction of the charity’s goals, developing the organisation’s aims, objectives and goals in accordance with the regulatory guidelines.

We are also looking to appoint a secretary for the charity. This is also a trustee position with a specific role on the board as secretary, and it would suit a person with very good organisational skills.

The role of a trustee is a voluntary position. It’s a rewarding role and you will be able to bring one or more of the following elements to the charity.

  • Strong in administration and social media skills
  • Skills in fundraising
  • Skills in communications and marketing

Above all we are looking for people with the credibility and passion to make a difference for everyone affected by HIV within the community. Although we operate within a very strong local community, we invite applications from Sussex and the surrounding areas.
