Who we are Vacancies Teapot Trust enhances the lives of children and young people, and their families, who are suffering the impact of painful long-term conditions which are often “invisible’ e.g.: rheumatic diseases. Our expertise is in the delivery of art therapy, often effective where talking therapies have failed. We work throughout the UK in hospitals, communities and online. Now ten years old, the charity has an exciting vision for the next ten – to be a respected leader in Creative Health. We would like to appoint 5 new trustees in two steps – by December 2021 and March 2022 – having considered succession planning. The priority roles we seek to fill first are below. A qualified and experienced CA to chair the finance sub-committee A parent with lived experience of caring for a child with a chronic condition A strategic fundraiser – preferably with experience of large public funding bids Prior experience as a trustee would be advantageous. This is an exciting time to join Teapot Trust and help the charity achieve our ambitions for growth – such is the extent of need with around a quarter of children and young people in the UK effected by chronic illness and physical disability. Trustees’ Meetings take place 6 times a year in alternate months while the Finance sub-committee meets monthly for scrutiny and risk management.
