Who we are
People’s Health Trust is a charity addressing health inequalities in England, Scotland and Wales. We work to ensure that where you live does not unfairly reduce the length of your life, or the quality of your health.
Unremunerated (Out of pocket expenses covered). For trustees who experience financial barriers to participating, we will discuss how we can support you to remove such barriers.
We are dedicated to reducing inequalities in health. We believe it is wrong that some people die younger or that they spend more of their life in poor health because of where they live or the communities they are part of. We believe this can change. Our work supports people to make that change happen.
We work in partnership with people and support them to create the changes they believe are needed to make their community a better place to grow, live, work and grow older. When communities take the lead they can strengthen the building blocks of health, including good homes, work and their environment.
How we work is challenging. It means letting go of power and supporting longer-term and systemic changes at a local level. So far, we have received over £129m, supported over 3,500 local organisations and over 653,000 local people in England Scotland and Wales, to be more in control of the decisions which affect them every day.
We now want to work with some new trustees to help us create greater impact and stronger partnership work. All our trustees need to have a strong commitment to social justice and to strengthening the building blocks of health for the communities that experience the greatest inequalities.
We want to ensure our trustees include deep experience and understanding of the communities we work with. We also particularly encourage applications people from Black, Asian and minoritised ethnic backgrounds, disabled people and younger people.
We are also seeking in-depth knowledge and experience in one of the following areas:
- Communications and influencing experience
- Business development, fundraising or the corporate sector
- People who live or work with or within Scotland and understand its structures and communities
