We are recruiting Trustees

About us

We are growing charity with expertise in delivering culturally responsive mental health services. SACMHF’s services have been developed to be culturally responsive due to people from Black African and Caribbean background being disproportionately represented with mainstream mental health services relative to our numbers within the wider population.  In addition people from this ethnic background experience poorer experience and outcomes than the wider population when accessing mainstream mental health services.  We are currently looking for new trustees (board members) to help us grow and improve.  Find out more about us on this website.

We would  be delighted to receive application from people who are:

  1. Aged 18 or older.
  2. From inside and outside the Black African and  Caribbean culture.
  3. Passionate about improving mental health services.
  4. Able to meet just 2 (or more) of the following criteria.
  1. Able to commit to up to 2 hours per month for meetings in addition to 1.5 days per year for strategic planning together with SACMHF staff.  All meetings will be at SACMHF registered offices at Kuumba Centre Boulton Road, West Bromwich B70 6NW.  Skype or teleconference can be used to aid flexibility and enable full participation.              


What we offer in return

A fantastic opportunity not just to make a difference in an are that matters to you, but also to develop your skills.  We will be able to fund some professional training, and will provide reimbursements for any travel and expenses.
