Trustee positions

Anxiety UK is seeking to recruit a new trustee.  If you would like to contribute to the work of the leading charity in the UK that supports those affected by anxiety, we would like to hear from you.

Anxiety UK was founded in 1970 by Katharine and Harold Fisher following Katharine’s experience of agoraphobia.  Today, Anxiety UK is still a small, friendly, user-led organisation that is, run by and for individuals with lived experience of anxiety.   The charity has a membership of over 10,000 and is nationally recognised for its responsive service delivery offer which currently includes therapy services, helpline provision, online groups, training and EAP services.

Please note: We are actively seeking applicants from parts of the country other than the North West, and are particularly interested in hearing from those based in London and the South East.

These roles are  unpaid/voluntary positions.

Demand for Anxiety UK’s services has grown considerably, particularly during the pandemic and we are now looking to recruit a new trustee, with specific expertise in:

Finance/accountancy

We pay trustees’ travel expenses and provide a full induction to the work of the charity.

The trustee we appoint to this role will be expected to attend four board meetings (held on a Saturday in Manchester, those these meetings can be attended remotely, particularly given the current climate) plus occasional other meetings/events. Lived experience of anxiety essential.
