Patrons and Trustees

The Mary Seacole Trust brings together people from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, including the Armed Forces and the NHS.

We aim to match the skill set of the board of trustees with the aims of the charity by including expertise such as in media and public relations, fundraising, education, diversity and leadership issues. Board membership reflects the charity’s strong links with the Armed Forces. All trustees and volunteers will undertake ongoing professional development appropriate to their roles.

We will respond flexibly to challenges by recruiting individual volunteers and private and public sector partner organisations with skill-sets appropriate to each project. All trustees and volunteer staff are unpaid.

Ambassadors will be identified and tasked with promoting the Mary Seacole Trust and acting as “consultants” contributing knowledge and insight.
