Would you like to become a Trustee of PlayWorks?

As part of the development of the governance of Nottingham Play Forum (PlayWorks), we are looking to appoint up to four new trustees from our members or those who have a particular interest in children’s play.

Whilst we welcome applications from all, we are particularly keen to increase the number of young people, women and ethnic minorities on the board, as they are currently under-represented.

Trustee meetings are held every six to eight weeks, the role being unpaid, although expenses may be claimed.

Having experience of being a trustee is not necessary, but the following aspects would be an advantage, although having all is not essential:

Experience of working in committee meetings
Have a basic understanding of financial matters
Have good team and interpersonal skills
Be prepared to contribute in board discussions

If you are interested in becoming a trustee, please email a short summary of your skills and experience to our Executive Chair graham.masters@playworks.com

If you would like to know more before making an application, give us a ring on 0115 958 9199 and speak to Heather Beastall our Office Manager, who will be pleased to answer any questions or queries you may have. 

Either way we look forward to hearing from you.



What is a Trustee? - Trustees have overall control of a charity and are responsible for making sure it’s doing what it was set up to do - they are the people who lead the charity and decide upon its goals & strategy and make sure action to achieve those goals is being taken.  

Trustees use their skills and experience to support the charity and help it achieve its aims, and are responsible for ensuring the charity meets its legal and financial obligations.

Being a trustee of PlayWorks means making decisions that will have a positive impact on children’s & young people’s lives, whilst making a positive difference to communities across Nottingham.
