Voluntary basis with expenses reimbursed

Crisis is the national homelessness charity. We help people directly out of homelessness, and campaign for the changes needed to solve it altogether. We work side by side with thousands of people each year as they find ways out of homelessness. We provide practical support to help people access housing, benefits, healthcare services, employment opportunities, and more. As well as helping to end homelessness for individuals, we work to address the root causes that push people into homelessness in the first place. We campaign on the political changes needed to end homelessness for good and conduct research to understand and highlight the scale, causes and consequences of homelessness.


This is a pivotal point, and key to our future success will be three new Trustees that can broaden our diversity and add to the skills and perspectives of an already high-performing Board. We are particularly interested in hearing from candidates who offer depth of insight, experience or influence within one or more of the following areas:

  • Governance and the charity sector
  • Campaigning, developing and implementing social and policy change
  • Housing policy and operational delivery, as we move into the arena of housing supply
  • Commercial expertise and networks for the diversification of our income strategy
  • Presence and networks in Scotland

We are a values-based organisation, and our trustees are a critical part of an organisation that is people-centred and forward-thinking. More than ever, it is important that we have the strong strategic leadership and governance required to make our mission to end homelessness a reality.

We are looking for three exceptional people, with the right skills and expertise, and a passion for our vision of ending homelessness. If this sounds like you, we look forward to hearing from you.
