Become a Trustee

Are you passionate about helping young people in the Newcastle achieve their full potential? Do you want to put youth work at the heart of West End communities?

Projects4Change is looking for dynamic, enthusiastic and open minded individuals to join our board of Trustees and help our charity to thrive. It’s an exciting time for us, as the number of creative projects at Betty’s Hut grows and our youth work projects across Newcastle increase.

WE LOVE YOUTH WORK, and we believe in the ability of youth work to change young people’s lives. We have a small but dedicated team of youth workers, and we need to strengthen our board with equally dedicated people who will support our project team.

We’re looking for:

  • A Chair to lead our organisation, and support our CEO with project development and funding opportunities
  • Treasurer
  • Trustee

It would be fantastic to welcome someone with previous experience of a trustee role and knowledge of the sector, but we’re equally as enthusiastic to welcome someone with energy and time to dedicate to these positions.

We would be willing to consider co-chair positions and a deputy chair if you’re looking to develop your skills and experience in a trustee role, or don’t have the time to commit to a full Chair position.

A background in youth work, or an affiliation with Cowgate or Blakelaw would be ideal but we’re happy to hear from people of all backgrounds and walks of life – as long as you’re interested in helping young people to unlock their potential.

Trustees typically contribute 4 – 8 days annually to the affairs of the trust and involve attendance between 4 – 8 meetings per annum. Most meetings take place in Newcastle or virtually on a Monday or Tuesday evening, between 6.30pm and 8.30pm. Outside of the board meetings, correspondence is conducted by email and telephone.

If you’d like to discuss a trustee role with us, please get in touch with Kelly at or give us a call. We’d love to have a chat and a cuppa with you!
