The Choir with No Name Request

Organisation Description

The Choir with No Name runs choirs and builds joyful singing communities with homeless and marginalised people, around the UK. Currently, there are six choirs: in Birmingham, Liverpool, London, Coventry, Brighton (run in partnership with Brighton Housing Trust) and Cardiff (run in partnership with The Wallich).

How it works…
We were founded on the premise that singing makes you feel good; it distracts you from all the nonsense in life and helps you to build confidence, skills and genuine, long lasting friendships. Our choir members are people who have experienced homelessness, or who are simply going through a tough time in their lives. We aim to help members to build their confidence and skills, and make genuine life long friendships, so that they are in a better position to tackle the other challenges in their lives, and move away from homelessness in the long-term.

What are they looking for?

We are looking for three new trustees including a new Chair of the board. We are at an exciting stage as an organisation, and we are keen to bring in new trustees to build and diversify our board’s experience and skills as we redevelop our strategy and plans. We are currently recruiting for a new Chair and two new trustees. Board meetings are once a quarter, we ask that you attend some gigs and occasional rehearsals, and there are additional sub-committees that you can also volunteer to be part of. This is an open call for trustees, but we are particularly interested in the following skills and experiences: People with lived experience of homelessness HR Fundraising Strategy and business development Arts/choral music and arts and social change/health All information can be found here:
