Fundraising and Communications Trustees

Our Governance

The Charity is governed by a Board which meets twice a year for up to one week on each occasion. There are 11 elected Trustees, 5 from Britain and Ireland and 6 from around the world, and a Chair, the Worldwide President (WWP), also elected, who is currently from Guyana.

We are seeking to appoint two Trustees, one with a particular expertise in fundraising and the other with a particular expertise in communications including digital communication.

This is a very exciting time for Mothers’ Union as we seek to modernise and refocus the charity to increase the impact members can have on the communities in which they live, and to foster growth.
