Become a trustee

Haringey Law Centre is a membership organisation. People can apply to become members and get involved in the life of the Law Centre. We also have a management committee made up of members who have been elected volunteer trustees. Trustees are elected/reelected at Haringey Law Centre’s annual general meeting and meet as Haringey Law Centre’s management committee around six times a year. Trustees on the management committee set the Law Centre’s strategic direction and hold Law Centre staff accountable for legal and financial decisions they make.  Trustees on the management committee are also required to ensure that the Law Centre’s accounts are independently audited filed with the Charities Commission by the end of each financial year.

We are very keen to discuss trustee appointments with people who have experience of one ore more of the following areas:

  • Law
  • Finance
  • Communications and Marketing
  • Fundraising
  • Social Enterprise
  • Charitable structures and governance matters
  • Legal Aid funding
  • Community Languages (particularly Turkish, Kurdish, Spanish, Somali)

Please do not hesitate to contact us for a discussion if you are interested in making a difference and have the skills to do so.
