Thank you for taking the time to consider what is an important leadership role for the Hounslow Community FoodBox. The information you can download on this page has been prepared to provide further information about us, the role of Trustee and guide you through the selection process.
Here at FoodBox we pride ourselves on being inclusive and community led. Our doors are open to everyone who shares our core value of making a positive impact on our community. While emergency food can’t solve poverty, it can provide a lifeline while other issues in people’s lives are being addressed.
FoodBox has evolved into an important and vital part of the community. Our service has been flexible and agile, reflecting the feedback and changing needs of both the clients we support and our referral partners. Working with key partners ensures that we can provide emergency food, and signpost those seeking support and advice to additional services in the borough.
We are in the process of agreeing our strategic plan and to support our main objectives we are looking for Trustees to join and strengthen our existing Board. We are looking for individuals who are committed to improving the life chances of those less fortunate, can think strategically and offer skills in areas such as: communications, technical IT and web support, health, wellbeing and nutrition and human resources particularly working with volunteers, coupled with good legal and governance insight.
In this recruitment round, we are looking to increase the diversity of our Board and representation from the communities we serve. We particularly welcome applications from people from ethnically and culturally diverse communities, as well as people with disabilities and other groups with protected characteristics.
This is an exciting time to join the Hounslow Community FoodBox, and having read this information pack, I hope that you are encouraged to apply for the role of Trustee.
