Trustee with Lived Experience

Location: Remote / London (no meeting physically until the pandemic is over)

Have you been an asylum seeker in the UK? Are you interested using your experience to help us achieve our mission? Have you ever considered joining a Charity Board as a Trustee?

We are looking for a new Board member to join our growing team of advocates for cycling who share The Bike Project’s values and ethos and are committed to our mission to support asylum seekers and refugees throughout the UK.

We aim for our board to be diverse, with a broad mix of skills and experience. However, we do not yet have any board members who have been an asylum seeker themselves on our Board of Trustees.

We feel it is particularly important to have someone with this experience to help us come up with innovative solutions to empower and welcome refugees and asylum seekers through bikes and cycling culture. In return, this position could give you some useful experience, while supporting other asylum seekers.
