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.

Anxiety UK has a strong digital presence with a substantial following on social media, particularly on Twitter and has a plan to grow digital engagement and service provision over the next 5 years as part of its business plan.

As a result, we are looking to recruit a new trustee, with specific expertise in (although applications from individuals with expertise in other areas would be considered):

Individuals located in the South East/South of the UK

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 (currently held remotely) plus occasional other meetings/events, held in Manchester.  Lived experience of anxiety essential.
