Help us to improve the lives of people in Wakefield! We are recruiting Trustees


Prosper Wakefield District, is an independent grant making charity that wants to make a big difference.

We want to recruit new trustees to strengthen our small but dynamic board as we enter an incredibly exciting time in the charity’s history.

Our grant programmes support the VCSE sector in the district, who work with some of the most vulnerable people and communities, and those facing the greatest health inequalities. We also work with health, business, and public sector partners to identify and develop shared approaches to reduce gaps in health inequalities in some of the districts most deprived neighbourhoods and communities.

The work of Prosper has never been more needed. The impact of the pandemic and the ongoing cost of living crisis has created huge challenges for charities and community organisations, and their ability to thrive and survive, so if you feel passionately about making a difference in the Wakefield district, then we would love to hear from you.

We particularly seek applicants from under-represented and minority groups. We also welcome younger applicants. We would greatly benefit from expertise in the areas of finance and investments, the law, and experience of working within the VCSE sector would be advantageous.

Applicants will have excellent communication skills, an understanding of the issues faced by the VCSE sector and be able to work well as part of a team of trustees. An understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, liabilities and responsibilities of trustees is also desirable.

As a trustee you will be offered training and development opportunities to support your role.

Please get in touch. For an initial discussion about these opportunities and to request an information pack, please contact us on 01924 373500 or email
