At Guideposts, our vision is for a society in which all people have the opportunity to live and independent and fulfilling life. As a Guideposts trustee, you will play a crucial part in making this vision a reality for the groups we support, including people with learning disabilities, mental health conditions and dementia.

Our trustees form the governing body responsible for steering the overall direction and strategy of our charity. They ensure we remain focused on our charitable objectives – supporting people with learning disabilities, dementia and mental health conditions to live the most independent and fulfilling lives possible. As a trustee, you will leverage your skills and experience to provide oversight across all areas of our work, from shaping key policies to monitoring our care services.

Joining us as a trustee gives you a platform to truly transform lives. If you share our mission and values, then we encourage you to consider applying to become a Guideposts trustee.
