Being assertive can help you to explain how you feel and what you need, without being rude or aggressive. These skills can help you stand up for yourself and still treat other people with respect.

Trust For London - Grants Committee Recruitment

Source By: Trust for London

Do you have first-hand experience of the many issues that make it hard for Londoners to make ends meet? Would you like to use this experience to help others and tackle the root causes of poverty and inequality in London? We are recruiting up to four people to join our Grants Committees and help us make decisions about where to place our funding.

Trust for London is a charitable foundation that awards nearly £10 million a year to organisations working to improve the living and working conditions of Londoners. This includes issues like low pay, insecure work, high rent and childcare costs, and insecure immigration status.

We are committed to tackling the root causes of poverty and inequality so that all Londoners can live a full and rewarding life. 

We have a Board of Trustees who oversee all aspects of the Trust, and two Grants Committees that make decisions about what to fund.

We are recruiting up to four people with recent first-hand experience of the issues we tackle to join our Grants Committees as co-opted members and help us make decisions about where to place our funding.

An open evening for prospective co-opted members will be held at the Trust for London offices, 4 Chiswell Street, EC1Y 4UP (nearest station Moorgate) on Wednesday 13 March from 5:30-6:30pm.

Co-opted members should commit to:

  • Attending three meetings a year (two and a half hours during office hours at set times).
  • Reading the applications and other papers ahead of the meeting.

Co-opted members have:

  • Full voting rights on the Grants Committee
  • The opportunity to visit a range of civil society organisations in London

This is not a paid position but reasonable expenses for travel will be reimbursed.

Our Grants Committees are comprised of our Trustees and co-opted members. These four appointments are for co-opted members, who are generally appointed because they bring specific skills or experience. 

We are interested in people who have experience of life on a low-income in London, either gained through their own everyday experience or through campaigning and/ or providing direct services.

If you are interested in finding out more about the role, please register for the open evening via Eventbrite.

Our offices are fully accessible.

Light refreshments will be provided.

If you cannot attend but would like more information about the role and how to apply, please email either Sioned Churchill (Director of Grants) - or Manny Hothi (Director of Policy) -

The deadline for applications is 22 March 2019.

Application forms for the role can be downloaded here- Grants_Committee_Co-Optee_application_form.docx

Join the Hackney Matters

Do you have something to say about living in Hackney? Tell us what you think by joining the Hackney Matters panel.

We would like to invite residents from all backgrounds to participate in our citizens' panel.

Hackney Matters is the Council's online panel made up of 2000 local residents who we go to when we want to get a better understanding of residents' views on local issues.

Members of the panel regularly provide feedback on issues that affect everyone living or working in the borough, such as, streets, parks, health and transport.

We are keen to recruit new members to help refresh the panel, so we can ensure it is representative of Hackney's diverse population. All information will be treated in the strictest of confidence and will only be used to monitor and improve local services.
