Use your experience and skills to help refugees and vulnerable migrants in Oxfordshire.

We are looking for someone who is committed to the rights and welfare of refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants to join our Board of Trustees.

As a trustee you will:
a) Be an important part of the body that governs the charity and ensures that it delivers its mission effectively.
b) Actively participate in meetings, offering guidance and support to ensure that Asylum Welcome delivers the vital work that it was set up to do, in the best possible way for clients.
c) Scrutinise Asylum Welcome’s budgets, management accounts and financial statements, ensuring that they meet the organisation’s needs and the relevant regulatory requirements.
d) Ensure Asylum Welcome is complying with its governing documents and the relevant laws, as well as updating and reviewing its own policies and procedures.
e) Bring particular skills, experience or insight that helps Asylum Welcome develop as an organisation.
f) Act, with care and skill, in Asylum Welcome’s best interests.

As an organisation we are committed to reflecting our diverse and vibrant Oxford community, and we particularly welcome those people with lived experience of being a refugee or migrant to join our board to help strengthen our governance and our approach. This means that you have come to this country as a refugee or asylum seeker or have lived with or grown up alongside people who did.

Trustees are not paid, but travel expenses may be claimed for attending meetings.
