Vacancies / How to Apply to be a Trustee

We currently have vacancies on the Board. 

We’re looking for people with the skills and knowledge to take on this governance role - making sure that, as a charity, we are doing our best to respond to the needs of people in the SMA Community, delivering our strategy and are raising the income we need to do this. We are particularly keen to hear from young adults and adults who have SMA and from parents and carers of children who have SMA.

Applications this year close on September 20th.

Once we receive your application, you will be contacted by our Board Chair, Mark Dearlove to talk about the work of the trustees and your interest in getting involved. You will also have the opportunity to talk with Katharine Jackson our Treasurer and our managers Caroline Dolan, Fundraising and Liz Ryburn, Support Services. Mark will agree what will happen next with you. This will depend on the number of applications we receive. Trustee appointments will be confirmed at the Annual General Meeting on 26th November 2020. Please see the links below for more information and an application form. If you have any queries or want to have a discussion about becoming a trustee, please contact
