Suffolk Law Centre (Suffolk) – Trustee

Suffolk Law Centre are looking for several trustees who reflect the communities that we work with and that have the shared goal of growing the organisation, reaching more people and ensuring our volunteers have the best possible experience.

The deadline for applications is Monday 20th February 2023 at 9am.

To request an application pack, or for further information, please email Sophie Steward, our Practice Manager, via or telephone 01473 934741. Interviews are expected to be held remotely during the two weeks from 27th February 2023.

We launched in 2018 to provide free legal advice and representation to people in Suffolk who cannot afford to pay for private lawyers.

We have shared Trustees with our founder Ipswich and Suffolk Council for Racial Equality (ISCRE). But, as we have grown significantly, we now need our own Board, so are looking for new Trustees, including a Chair.

As a Trustee, you will help us to shape our strategic direction and ensure good governance.

This could be your first Trustee role, or you could bring a wealth of knowledge from another charity. We are keen to attract people with a varied skillset who share our values of inclusion and equality.

We want our Board to reflect the diverse communities we seek to support, so particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian & ethnic minorities, people with disabilities and LGBTQ+ people.

Full Board meetings will take place about 6 times a year, usually for a few hours in the evening. Trustee positions are unpaid, but we don’t expect trustees to be out of pocket for carrying out their role, so we always cover expenses.
