Art In Perpetuity Trust – 2 Trustees Required

Art in Perpetuity Trust was founded in 1995 by a group of artists in an old warehouse on Deptford Creek.

Its mission is to support creative thought and artistic vision both in the studio and in the wider world.  At its freehold premises on the banks of Deptford Creek, APT provides 42 secure studios for visual artists, a contemporary art gallery, a working sculpture yard and an external public performance space.  

We are looking to recruit 2 new Trustees to join our active and engaged Board.

This is an exciting time for APT, as we work to ensure we have a resilient organisation for the future.  Having recently undergone a process of internal evaluation, which resulted in appointing 3 new Trustees earlier this year, our current board are keen to appoint a further two Trustees to strengthen our skillset.

A.P.T currently has 7 Trustees, each having a specific area of responsibility towards realizing the aims of the Charity.     We are now looking candidates with skills and experience in one or more of the following areas:

Local professional in either arts or education, with an excellent knowledge of local communities in South London or a connection to our local area

Legal expert with understanding of charity and / or property law

We strongly encourage individuals from diverse backgrounds to apply, as we are keen for our work to be informed by and representative of the diverse communities we serve.

However, all applications will be gladly considered, as we value lived experience as highly as more tangible skills.

If you would like to be a part of a charity that connects people to nature through the food we eat, please and request a recruitment pack for more details and how to apply, applications to be received by 25th September.

Legal Trustee for I CAN

Location: Flexible, with maximum 5 meetings per year in London

Unpaid, volunteer role

We are the leading children’s communication charity in the United Kingdom and were originally formed in 1888. Our purpose – to make sure that no child is left behind due to struggling to communicate – has never been more relevant. We need good Trustees to help us develop our organisation and continue to grow our reach and impact. Post-covid, 1.5 million children are at risk of being left behind with their speaking and understanding with devastating consequences for their education, mental health and future employment.

We are looking for a Legal Trustee to join our high performing board and chair our remuneration committee. The commitment is for 4 Board meetings of less than half a day per annum plus a full Board Awayday, whilst the remuneration committee meets twice a year, again for less than half a day. In addition, there is time needed to read papers, which you’ll receive a week in advance, and the occasional need to provide expert advice and guidance to the leadership team on specific issues and projects.

We are at an exciting time in the charity’s development as we look to extend our reach, advocate more effectively and digitise our services. You can read more about our latest campaign at
