Fundraising

We are always in search of new funding to enable us to improve and expand the services we deliver to meet the needs of our local community. 

The Trust welcomes any donations from the general public to help keep our services running. 

You could fundraise for our cause. Choose a challenge, something you have always wanted to do, and then simply set up your own fundraising page with the Besson Street Trust as your chosen charity. Have a look for what inspires you on Discover Adventure, for example, and then simply select us as your charity.

Become a Trustee

Becoming a Trustee at Besson Street Trust is an excellent way to support your local community, apply your skills, and broaden your experience. 

Trustees are volunteers and serve on the Board, which is responsible for the effective running of the organisation and for ensuring the charity meets its objectives. Typically, Board meetings take place every other month. 

We currently have vacancies for Resident Board members, who should live in the surrounding area. If you’d like to find out more, please contact recruitment@bessonstreet.org.uk

Work for us

We have a small number of permanent or fixed-term roles within the Trust. Vacancies are advertised publicly on our jobs page.

 

We also have several sessional staff who deliver specific projects, which are developed around the priorities of the Trust and according to funding availability.

 

If you would like to be considered for future roles, have a project idea you would like to develop, or specific skills you may be able to offer, we'd love to hear from you.
