Come join us: We're recruiting new Trustees
Updated: Nov 27, 2019
We’re looking to grow our Board of Trustees by recruiting a new Chair and two new Trustees to join our team helping to drive forward the Foundation in an exciting time. This is a unique opportunity to help shape a relatively new Foundation at the beginning stages of development.
After helping us to establish the Foundation and guiding us through the first few years of development, our current Chair, David Sulkin OBE is coming to the end of his term. He will be stepping down as Chair but staying on as a Trustee on our Board.
The new Chair will lead the Board and support the development of the Foundation’s strategy with particular interest and experience in culture, health and wellbeing. With a senior leadership background and track record of delivering successful programmes, you will also have previous governance experience within a charity or social sector organisation. The Chair will be confident in taking an ambassadorial role and helping to build and develop strong networks for the Foundation.
The Trustees will bring previous high-level experience and we have identified the following areas of expertise that we’re interested in adding to our Board:
Health sector experience with a special interest in mental health and wellbeing
Fundraising experience with specific interest in trusts and foundations
Experience in research with a background in science
Local or regional experience within the mental health sector specifically with young people and adolescents
Both Chair and Trustees will have an interest and experience with adolescents with a passion for improving the lives of young people.
The Foundation welcomes applications regardless of sex, gender, race, age, sexuality, belief or disability. We’re also happy to have an informal conversation regarding the Foundation and the roles.

If you’d like to apply, please send in your CV with a covering letter by 30 November to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Sing Up Foundation Board’ in the subject line.
The Sing Up Foundation believes in harnessing the power of singing to improve people's mental health and wellbeing. With 50% of mental health problems established by the age of 14 and 75% by the age of 24, we believe it's critical to focus on prevention by working with young people. The benefits of singing, especially in groups, are wide-ranging with extensive research supporting the physiological, social, psychological and behavioural benefits.
The Sing Up Foundation aims to produce, promote and create opportunities for children and young people to improve their mental health and wellbeing through singing.
