The Rees Foundation are seeking to appoint Trustees to support its Board.

As a trustee with The Rees Foundation, you will have the opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of care leavers. The Rees Foundation was set up 2013 to help those who have been through the care system. Care experience often has a lifelong impact and moving from care into living alone can be difficult. Support shouldn’t stop just because someone is leaving care. The Rees Foundation seeks to listen and support people; it provides practical help and care, based on the individual’s needs.

We are looking to recruit Trustees to our board, preferably those who have business or third sector experience; we would positively encourage applications from those who are care experienced. We have at 6 meetings a year at our head offices based in Droitwich.

If you would like to have an informal chat to understand more about the charity and the role, please email Melody Douglas Interim CEO at

To apply for the position, you will need to complete the attached Rees Foundation Trustee application form and send it by email to Melody Douglas at the above email address. You can read the Charity Trustee Job Description.

We look forward to hearing from you.
