Leeds Baby Bank works to support families in crisis across the city caring for children aged 0-5 by providing baby essentials and equipment to ensure that no child goes without. Through a referral service with associated professionals and the steadfast support of the Leeds community, we help around 90 families a month. The vast majority of items are donated pre-loved from the public helping to build a sustainable Leeds.
Our values are
• connecting people
We are looking for new trustees who are passionate about these values and the work that we do to support families in poverty. We have 3 members of staff – a manager, unit supervisor and driver who delivers to families using our wonderful new electric van. We also have a fantastic team of volunteers, both long term and short-term student placements/ local
businesses volunteer days.
What we are looking for
We would love to recruit a new trustee who is passionate about our work and can bring enthusiasm and dedication. We are keen to have a more diverse board of trustees and would strongly encourage applications from those with a disability, or from black, indigenous or people of colour communities.
We ask for a minimum two year commitment and trustees meet quarterly (with occasional extra meetings for specific additional projects/ purposes). Previous trustee experience is not essential although relevant experience (life experience, voluntary or work experience) is desirable.
