Hillingdon Community Trust distributes around £1m, contributed by Heathrow Airport Limited, in grants to voluntary and community groups in the wards of Botwell, Pinkwell, Townfield, Heathrow Villages, Yiewsley and West Drayton.

We are seeking new Trustees to join the current board in February next year when current terms of office come to an end. This is an exciting voluntary opportunity if you are strongly committed to positive change for local communities.

To be a Trustee you will need to be impartial, independent, and have good judgement and common sense. You must also be able to devote time to the Trust, to contribute effectively at meetings of the Board, and to accept the legal responsibilities of trusteeship. The trust is a company limited by guarantee, so in serving as a trustee you will also become a Director of the company. We would expect you to have some connection with the Trust area in the south of Hillingdon.

So that the Board reflects its area of benefit, the Trust is keen to attract Trustees from across the diverse communities that make up the population of the south of Hillingdon and also to attract more young people (although you must be over 18).

Trustees are not remunerated but we do reimburse expenses.
