Schools in Sandwell need people like you!

by Sandwell Council

If you are committed, enthusiastic and want to make a difference, apply to be a governor at a school in Sandwell. School governors are volunteers from all backgrounds and walks of life. They often meet monthly (usually outside of school hours) to monitor how a school is using its resources and meeting its objectives to provide a good education for pupils. We want you to be part of that check and challenge process and to bring your views and opinions. Being a governor can give you lots of skills too. You’ll build networks and gain valuable experience in areas such as planning, working with budgets, problem solving and using data. It’s a voluntary role, but it’s a brilliant way to give back to your community and will look great on your CV if you’re looking for work. Pre-agreed expenses are reimbursed. So, go for it – do something brilliant and help to ensure all children receive the education they deserve! Interested? Take a look at our video to find out more Apply online at

Join us as a Trustee to help give people more choice

by Options for Life

Options for Life is a dynamic not-for-profit charity dedicated to empowering adults with learning disabilities and/or autism to boost their confidence, develop valuable skills, and live independently, enjoying the same rights, opportunities and choice as everyone else. We want to support more people with profound or multiple learning disabilities, and develop new services to provide supported employment opportunities. But to do this we need professionals who can guide and develop the charity’s strategy as Trustees. Many of our current Trustees will complete their terms this year. We particularly value financial and public administration skills and people with lived experience of disability. We believe in the strength of a varied board and welcome applicants from all walks of life, regardless of their previous Trustee experience. Our Trustees are central to our success, and we need Trustees who share our desire to overcome years of prejudice. The financial situation is challenging, but the rewards are enormous. Pre-agreed expenses such as travel costs will be reimbursed.
