About AcSEED

AcSEED believes that young people's emotional development is equally important as their academic progression, and recognises the importance of children developing into well-rounded and resilient individuals. The AcSEED Initiative (AcSEED) was founded by young people with lived experience of emotional wellbeing challenges at school, and is exclusively focussed on improving the emotional wellbeing and mental health support provided to young people in all UK schools and colleges.

With schools in more than 30 UK counties working towards AcSEED accreditation for emotional wellbeing and mental health support, we are seeking enthusiastic individuals with a passion for improving young people's mental health and wellbeing to help drive the next phase of AcSEED's growth.

Purpose of the Role

AcSEED is currently seeking new trustees to help drive our organisation forward. As a small but rapidly growing charity, there is a great opportunity for trustees to play a significant role in shaping our strategy and organisation in order to meet our ambitious goals.

To ensure that the board of trustees has the required breadth of skills, we are particularly interested to receive applications from individuals with experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Young people's mental health and wellbeing.
  • Wellbeing support in a school or college environment.
  • Finance, accounting, fundraising, and funding applications.
  • Charity governance.

Applicants may additionally apply for the specific trustee roles of Treasurer and Secretary as the current incumbents are ad interim.

Length of Appointment

Trustees are appointed for a 3 year term.

You must be at least 16 years of age to apply for a trustee role.

How to Apply

Please apply by sending an email to contact@acseed.org. Your application should include:

  • The role ID and role title you are applying for.
  • A description of your relevant knowledge and experience (an attached CV would be ideal) and how this helps you to satisfy the requirements of the role.
  • Any additional skills and value you can bring to the organisation.

Please also include the names and contact details (preferably email) of 2 referees, at least one of whom is aware of your relevant experience.
