Trustee Recruitment

Homelessness is still an issue and, with changes to the benefit system and cuts in public spending, we find our services are needed just as much as when we first started working in Ipswich in the 1970s. 

ihAg has a strong commitment to campaigning on behalf of single homeless people, and has links with a wide range of organisations, both local and national. As well as the 43 salaried staff, ihAg relies on a voluntary management committee of Trustees to oversee the charity’s practice, strategic direction and spending. It is serious and unpaid work but, at its simplest, all you need is life experience, a commitment to the interests of single homeless people and a bit of time to spare (about one evening a month).

Although we have no vacancies on our Board at this time, we are always looking for people to volunteer their time, skills and knowledge to support ihAg to raise awareness as well as funds, and reach people who need our services.

If you think this may be something you would like to get involved in, then please contact us for more details. We will put you in touch with the Chair or the CEO if you would like to discuss the matter further. We are keen to reflect the ethnic and gender balance of our client group in our staff and trustee groups; to this end we are actively seeking interest from minority ethnic groups.

We look forward to hearing from you.
