The Lavender Touch is seeking new trustees to help the charity as we grow and develop

Based in Galashiels, Scottish Borders, the Lavender Touch is a well-established charity working to support people through their cancer experience, this includes their families and carers.

The Lavender Touch believes that it is important to work with the local communities to co-design and adapt to local needs.

The Lavender Touch provides a diverse range of activities and support to its beneficiaries. This is an exciting opportunity to get involved with the charity as it seeks to develop.

The role may appeal to people with a background and skills in one or more of the following areas: cancer care, business planning and development, fundraising, HR, working with volunteers, IT, charity governance or marketing.

The Lavender Touch would like to appoint trustees to complement the current board in its role as a governing body: setting strategy and ensuring exemplary governance and fiscal control. Ideally the candidate would be someone with an understanding of charities and the voluntary sector and/or lived experience.

The charity is keen to bring additional skills to its board, however, the lavender touch is keen to attract applicants from a diverse audience so other skills will also be welcomed.

Trustee meetings are held on average every 6 weeks and these are currently being held virtually. There may a requirement for additional communication with employees and charity members.
