Tir Coed is governed by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable board of 9 trustees with a mixture of private, public and third sector experience.
At this exciting time, we feel it is really important to bring some new people to join our Board of Trustees. The role involves volunteering around 7-10 days a year of your time (including email traffic) to guide and support the Charity. All reasonable expenses are covered. For the Trustee posts, Tir Coed are very much seeking to encourage females, BAME people and younger people to apply, especially those who can bring financial, HR, or legal expertise to the Board, however all interested people will be considered on merit. Please contact the Director in the first instance for an informal chat on what is involved if you or anyone you know may wish to join our Board.
If you are interested in becoming a Tir Coed trustee and have an interest in our work please contact us
Tir Coed has offered 7 office-based placements over the past 5 years.
After starting with Tir Coed I have experienced a totally progressive, effective, validating, affirming and supportive organisation, have learned so much and witnessed the impressive transformation of many volunteers socially emotionally and psychologically
