Trustees & Staff

Trustees

For Us Too’s trustees are volunteers. The board of trustees sets the direction of the charity’s work, writes strategies and keeps a track of progress, performance and finances. It is important to us that the majority of our trustees are, and always will be, parents or carers of disabled children / young people. We can have up to 12 trustees, and any member of For Us Too can apply.  If you are interested in volunteering as a trustee, please contact Anna, our Head of Charity, who will put you in touch with a member of the board.
