Trustee Vacancies

Join our Board of Trustees and help us ensure our charity continues to provide its invaluable services to the families who need them.

We’re looking for new Trustees!


  • Maybe you live or work in our local communities in the Stoke-on-Trent area?

  • Maybe you’ve experience of social care, housing or homelessness challenges?

  • Or maybe you just care about the future of The Gingerbread Centre and want to see it thrive?

If you'd welcome a new challenge as a Trustee, we'd welcome having some new colleagues on our Board - people with different ideas and fresh perspectives.

This could be a win / win situation: -

  • You’d be able to gain experience of being part of a Board and influence the decision-making.
  • We’d gain a new voice with different strengths, knowledge and experience.

Why not have a look around this website and find out more about what we do and then have a look at our Trustee Role Description.

What else do you need to know? 

  • This is an unpaid role, however we pay out-of-pocket expenses.
  • Our Board meetings are currently held every three months on a weekday evening – at the moment these are happening online. 
  • Papers are sent out in advance, so you’d need to allow time to read them so that you could participate fully at the meetings.
  • You would need to confirm your eligibility to be a Trustee by completing an Eligibility Form.

You never know, you could end up agreeing with our Chair, Ele Morrissey, who says “I decided to volunteer as a Trustee to support Gingerbread as the Charity does fantastic work locally supporting vulnerable families, to be able to influence the growth and sustainability of the Charity is hugely rewarding.”
