Become a Trustee

Bristol Mind is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. This means that we are required to have a group of volunteers elected at the Annual General Meeting to be responsible for the overall organisation including its finances and its activities.

Our constitution states that a minimum of 52% of our trustees must have personal experience of emotional or mental health problems. Currently 75% of our trustees bring their personal knowledge of distress including using services to their trustee role.

For more information about being a trustee email or phone Claire Farnworth (Office Co-ordinator) on 0117 980 0370.
