Who we are

If you are someone who understands the work of the charity sector and has the skills, experience, and time to make a real difference as a serious and committed Trustee we would love to hear from you. We are a progressive forward-thinking Charity with a strong CEO and a versatile, dedicated staff team. As a Board we believe it is critical to ensure we have current and future skills, knowledge and experience needed to support the Charity’s aims.
Mindfulness in Schools Project (MiSP) is a national, not-for-profit charity No 1168992. Our aim is to improve the lives of a generation of children and young people by making a genuine, positive difference to their mental health and wellbeing.
We are the most established provider of mindfulness training for schools, delivering world-leading curricula for classroom-based mindfulness. Our materials are based on rigorous research in clinical psychology and neuroscience, written by teachers for teachers, and used successfully in a wide range of educational contexts.
We are now seeking to enhance our existing board skills with the addition of 2 Trustees with specific expertise in Education, Fundraising, IT or Digital. A keen interest in the health and well-being of children and young people and the practice of mindfulness is desired.
We are committed to ensuring that we have a balanced and diverse Board - diversity, inclusion, and critical friendship matter to us. By attracting people to work with us from a broad range of diverse backgrounds we can continue to look at the world with fresh eyes and find new ways of doing things.
Person Specification:
• A commitment to the organisation and its charitable objectives
• A willingness to devote the necessary time and effort
• Strategic vision
• Good, independent judgement
• An ability to think creatively
• A willingness to speak their mind
• An understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of trusteeship
• An ability to work effectively, and proactively, as a member of a team
• A commitment to Nolan’s seven principles of public life: selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership.
