Board of Trustees
Trustees representing CBO's are being sought for the AHPN Board
As a charity and as part of our legal obligation, applications are currently being sought from CBO's to join the Board. This would mean that the overall direction and running of AHPN is provided by trustees with a wider scope of experience background and skills.

AHPN along with the support of CBO's and other organisations has played a vital and credible role in the addressing and being an advocate for BME communities who live with long term conditions and also being a voice to represent them and making sure that their care needs are being met by local government in the UK.
We are looking for trustees who can:
* Expand on our existing fundraising methods
* Build relationships with potential corporate donors
* Network and gain support for AHPN and its cause
Candidates from all backgrounds are welcome and we would be particularly interested to recruit someone with experience in fundraising, marketing or PR or working with BME communities
