Trustee Opportunities

Changing Faces is delighted to be recruiting two new Trustees and an Honorary Treasurer.
Right now people with visible differences are being ignored, abused and silenced – just
because they look different. They are vulnerable to isolation, loneliness, social anxiety and
low self-esteem. They experience lowered expectations in school, problems getting work
and stereotyping in the media.

So at Changing Faces we won’t stop until everyone with a visible difference has the
confidence, support and opportunity to live the lives they want.

This is an important and exciting time to be joining us. 2018/19 is the first year of our new
Strategic Plan. Our ambition is to transform our charity so that we can have the greatest
possible impact – always keeping the voices of people affected by visible difference at the
heart of our approach. We know there are thousands more people who need our help.

We are looking for Trustees who share our vision for Face Equality and who have the
energy, integrity, passion and skills to work with the Board of Trustees, our CEO and her
team, and our community to drive forward a successful and dynamic future for our charity.

We hope you will feel inspired to join us.

The closing date for applications is Monday 7th January 2019 at 9am

Wellbeing Helpline Volunteer

Changing Faces is the UK’s leading charity for everyone who has a mark, scar or
condition that makes them look different. Being different in a society where there is
such pressure to look a certain way is extremely difficult. We provide advice and
support, we challenge discrimination, and we campaign for a world that respects
difference.
We are looking for volunteers to help us shape our helpline when we launch it. If you
are warm, empathetic and emotionally resilient, this might be the role for you. The
helpline’s opening hours will be Monday to Friday 10.00 – 16.00 and we will require
you to cover a four and a half hour shift per week to include supervision and
debriefing. We ask that you commit to a minimum period of one year.
You will receive full training and work alongside a Helpline Practitioner with ongoing
support in our central London office. You will also be expected to attend occasional
continuing professional development and supervision sessions.
This is an amazing opportunity for anyone interested in making a difference in the
lives of people affected by visible difference.
To register your interest in this role, please return your completed application form by
email to support@changingfaces.org.uk by 5pm on Monday 29 October 2018.
