Who we are

Borderline Support UK CIC is a national user-led community interest company which promotes the use of lived experience and peer support to be there for anyone affected in any way by BPD, enabling them to live their lives to the fullest. We believe that people experiencing mental distress because of their BPD can direct their own journey towards wellbeing and recovery, to live a full life with improved mental health.

  • ​actively contributing to setting policy and strategic direction
  • supporting the development of services through participation in agreed projects
  • actively seeking to further the strategic objectives of the organisation
  • acting as an ambassador and acting in its best interests at all times
  • maintaining confidentiality about any sensitive or confidential information received in the course of duties as a trustee

We are looking for candidates who:

  • have experience in safeguarding, fundraising, marketing (or other relevant skills)
  • have good knowledge of charity governance

At Borderline Support we embrace diversity. We recognise that charity trusteeship is predominantly white and are committed to making change. Our work on this is at all levels and we are passionate that our trustee board should be truly representative of the people it serves. We’re therefore encouraging applicants from all backgrounds and especially those from Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups. Given the nature of our work, we are also keen to add more voices with lived experience to the Board too – helping us to evolve our work with all these experiences in mind.
