    Talk Matters is seeking volunteer trustees to join its board. Trustees contribute to the realisation of Talk Matters' goal of relieving people in need of psychological support by the provision of a financially accessible, professional counselling service.

Presently, the board comprises five trustees. The charity is held in high standing and trustees are rightly protective of its reputation.

Director, Trustee, Board/Committee member or Governor?!

Organisations have different names for the volunteers who are responsible for the running of the organisation - some are called Board members, some are Committee members, some may use the word Director for example. Broadly speaking, they mean the same thing - the people at the top who are ultimately responsible! These are important roles (for which training and support is available) and without volunteers at board level voluntary sector organisations could not exist.
