We appreciate your interest in becoming a Trustee of Advocacy West Wales.
Being a trustee is a rewarding experience. It gives you an opportunity to put something back into the community. You can use skills you already have and develop new ones. You will meet new people, both amongst the trustees and on the staff team, and have the opportunity to work as part of the team. You will know that you have been able to contribute to helping individuals feel heard, and influence their own lives, often at times of crisis or concern.
