Become a Trustee

Interested in joining our Trustee Board?

Resolve is a registered charity and led by a Board of Trustees.

The Trustees (all unpaid volunteers) act individually and collectively, to provide an overall stewardship of the charity, in accordance with our governing documents, relevant legislation and regulatory requirements. In essence we look after the staff and the organisation, so they can support the community.

We are looking to recruit Trustees.

Views from current trustees:

“Being a Trustee at Resolve is giving me an opportunity to help in an area which I have great empathy with.”

“As a trustee, I feel both enormous pride and deep humility at the struggles and strength of so many of our clients at Resolve in their attempts, to overcome … addiction.”

“Growing up there’s not much you can do to change your surrounding when its being blighted by substance abuse. However as a Trustee it’s great to support a charity that is making such a difference to families and communities.”

“I love being part of a collaborative team who care about our cause. For me it’s all about working together for the those we work with and the people who benefit. I enjoy being inspired by generous, supporting and caring people who work for free to provide a safe infrastructure by bringing together the combined experience and skills of the board.”

“Having seen the devastating effects of both addiction and homelessness first hand, I knew the opportunity to get involved with Resolve as a Trustee was for me. Seeing the great work that Resolve does up close and to hear the impact that these services have on service users, their families and loved ones as well as the local community, truly impresses me. So, being able to play some small part by contributing as a Trustee is enormously rewarding. I also have more awareness of what is happening in my local community and what’s more I get to work with a great team.”

You don’t need specific qualifications or experience to be a trustee. Some trustee roles, like the Treasurer require particular skills and we welcome people of all ages, backgrounds and experience who are passionate the work of Resolve.

The amount of time spent on Resolve matters will vary for each Trustee and from month to month. Formal board meetings take place 4-6 times a year, usually on a weekday evening. However, Trustees will meet up with fellow Trustees and with staff and volunteers in-between these formal meetings to work on projects, provide oversight and offer support.
