Charity Trustee

Website Heaven's Playground Org via Trustees Unlimited

Who We Are

Heaven’s Playground is the brainchild of Michelle Tomkinson, a woman who found a new reason for getting up each day after several losses in connecting with and helping others going through the same. The ‘mission’ of Heaven’s Playground is to help those who have lost loved ones whatever the circumstances and whoever the loss. We hope to do that through our words and our designs. We are always available to talk and we have a shop where you can find angel-related items at reasonable prices.

Position Description

Heaven’s Playground Org has a small committed Board of Trustees and is always looking to bring in different perspectives and areas of expertise to complement and strengthen the board further.

All Trustees are responsible for ensuring that Heaven’s acts in the interest of the charity and the underrepresented groups it serves and, in line with its charitable objectives, must ensure that the charity’s performance is evaluated in this respect. In addition to formal Board meetings, Trustees should be willing to engage in other ways, for example by joining a working group or committee for a specified period or providing advice to the senior leadership team on a more ad hoc basis.

It is an advantage, though not a requirement, if trustees have contacts who are interested in supporting Heaven’s aims.

Following an annual skills and demographics audit of the current Board of Trustees/Directors, we are looking for individuals with professional experience and knowledge in:

  • Finance
  • Fundraising​
  • Law​
  • HR
  • Business/Entrepreneur

Together with:

  • an enthusiasm and support for the aims and objectives of Heavens.
  • a demonstrable commitment to equality, diversity, inclusion and widening access.

We are striving to diversify the Board and make it representative of 21st Century Britain and welcome applications from traditionally under-represented peoples. As a national organisation, we also encourage applications from people living anywhere in the UK.
If you are interested in applying but do not possess the experience in the above areas, do pleasecontact us as future vacancies may require other experience.

Closing Date: June 21, 2024
