Are you a young deaf person? Do you want to:

  • Expand your CV and develop your skills as a leader of the future?
  • Gain experience in a boardroom environment without the risk or legal responsibility of being a Trustee?

By joining the SignHealth Trustee Shadow Scheme in 2020, you’ll get the opportunity to:

  • Observe board meetings and learn about charity leadership
  • Spend time with the Chief Executive and senior managers to learn how a charity works.
  • Be ‘buddied up’ with an existing SignHealth trustee to talk about what being a trustee means and the key responsibilities/duties.

Why choose SignHealth?

  • SignHealth exists to improve Deaf people’s health and wellbeing.
  • We are proud to be deaf-led and want to make sure more young deaf people have the chance to develop the skills to be successful leaders of the future.
  • We are particularly keen to support young deaf people from black, Asian and minority ethnic coummunities onto the scheme.
  • The scheme is free and we will cover your travel costs.


UPDATE – We received a very enthusiastic response to this opportunity so we are no longer accepting applications for 2020. Please subscribe to our mailing list or follow us on social for updates and details about the next round of recruitment for the Trustee Shadow Scheme.
