o   Boscombe regeneration

o   West Howe regeneration

o   Services for Young People

You will have the time and interest to meet at least 6 times a year and be an active member of the Board.  You are available for contact outside meetings and events by telephone or e-mail. 

What We Are Looking For

Bournemouth 2026 Trust is recruiting for 2 or 3 Trustees to join their dynamic board.  We are looking for talented and motivated people who sympathise with the aims of the organisation and who can give commitment and time to help us grow.
