Become a Trustee today

We welcome new Trustees and are particularly keen to recruit disabled people to join our Board. You would get an opportunity to observe a meeting and would receive a full induction pack.
We aim to incorporate a balance of skills and experience and will consider your application with this in mind. CHOICE’S Board of Trustees is responsible for the strategic direction of the organisation.
