Trustee/Director

Opportunity

Red Balloon Braintree is a small Charity and Company limited by guarantee which works in partnership with Red Balloon of the Air to provide education, counselling and therapy to children who are unable to go to school due to anxiety / mental illness – we return these children to mainstream education, further education or employment.

Some of our children are funded by the Local Authority, some are funded or part-funded by their school, others have no funding whatsoever. Our main purpose is to raise funds so these Essex children can attend Red Balloon of the Air. We also contribute towards the cost of the Satellite Centre where students, once they have the confidence to leave their home, meet with other students to improve their social skills, work in teams and enjoy physical exercise.

We are looking for up to three new Trustees.

Skills

We are looking for three new Trustees to help with administration, grant applications (about one per month), publicity (a termly newsletter to supporters; presentations to eg Rotary Clubs; attend Community 360 events) and general fundraising.

Training will be provided as required.
