Become a trustee
The Board of Trustees are the group of people legally responsible for leading Pyramid.
The trustees make sure that Pyramid is well-run, and that it delivers its Charitable Objectives.
Our main charitable objective is to promote the integration of people with and without learning disabilities through the creative arts.
Trustees come from all sorts of different backgrounds. It is good to have a mix of trustees with different experience, knowledge and skills. Everybody brings something different.
Our trustees are people who know about one or more of these things:
- Working in the arts and creative industries
- Support and services for people with a learning disability
- Strategic and business planning
- Access and Inclusion
- Finances, accounting and/or fundraising
- Employment, HR and staff support / mentoring
- PR, marketing and publicity
- Charity governance and legal responsibilities
If you are interested in becoming a trustee, please get in touch (click here for contact details). We will arrange an informal chat with a senior staff member or trustee, and you can attend a Board meeting as an observer to learn more about what’s involved.
