Clergy Support Trust

Voluntary basis

We are actively seeking new trustees to join our board. Earlier this year, we relaunched our charity with a bold and inclusive new brand and an ambitious four-year strategy aimed at making our grant-making more focused and doubling the number of clergy families which we help. Following a review of current skills and expertise, the Trust is now seeking new trustees who can bring expertise in: investment; finance, audit and risk, social work and social policy, and welfare and benefits. We are seeking people who are proven leaders within their field, who have strategic acumen and the ability to see the bigger picture. You will be an excellent communicator with highly effective interpersonal and influencing skills, sound and independent judgement, and the ability to think creatively. Of course, we are also looking for people who share our deep commitment to the wellbeing of Anglican clergy families today.
