Join us: We're looking for Trustees to join our Board

The Sing Up Foundation is looking for individuals who are passionate about singing and music-making and improving children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing to join our Board of Trustees for our charity. Following a period of growth and development supported by Arts Council funding, this is a unique opportunity to help shape our charity and support our work.  



 

Trustees will have an interest and experience with children and young people and a passion for improving their lives. We have identified the following areas of expertise that we’re particularly interested in adding to our Board of Trustees:  

  • Fundraising and/or finance experience  

  • Local or regional experience within the mental health sector specifically with young people and adolescents 

  • Lived experience and/or expertise in Mental Health Services 

  • Parents of children and young people that have experience and knowledge of the mental health challenges faced by young people 

  • 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, the Board of Trustees and our work.  


We also recognise that not everyone will have had the same opportunities to progress to a governance level in their careers and we welcome applications from those who may not have previous experience serving on a Board. This is not in any way a barrier to a successful application.

 

This is a volunteer role and does not include remuneration but reasonable travel expenses are covered.

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.
