CleanupUK is seeking to appoint two new trustees to join its board.
In particular we are looking for expertise in: Fundraising – ideally we are seeking a trustee who has all-round fundraising expertise, but particularly in the areas of major donor and trust fundraising; and a trustee with Communications/PR/Press expertise.
The Board of Trustees meets four times a year in London, for half a day. We communicate regularly between formal meetings, usually by email or phone.
If you are interested please send your CV and a brief letter explaining why you are interested to our Chief Executive George Monck at: CleanupUK, PO Box 2045, Bristol BS35 1ZL or by email to email@example.com. Alternatively, please phone George for an informal chat on 077-9669-1220. If you feel passionate about the need to tackle the problem of litter and to help communities overcome the problems that litter causes, we would like to hear from you wherever in the UK you are based.
CleanupUK was founded in 2007. We tackle the problem of litter in two ways – first, by encouraging and supporting volunteer litter groups generally, wherever in the UK they are and, second, by running projects which give direct help to those who live in deprived areas.
General Support for Volunteer Litter Groups
CleanupUK’s general support for volunteer litter groups involves, in the first instance, the www.litteraction.org.uk website (which we run with the Campaign to Protect Rural England – CPRE). The LitterAction website is used as a base by volunteer litter groups to help them to run their group in a more effective way, to recruit new members to their group, to afford them access to all the information that they need in running their group and to provide them with the means to discuss issues with, to share best practice with and to learn from other volunteer groups around the UK. In addition to this general support for volunteer litter groups, CleanupUK has become a leading voice for litter volunteers and a key promoter of litter volunteering.
Work in Deprived Areas
CleanupUK’s principal on-the-ground approach involves working with local authorities and other partners to stimulate and encourage local litter volunteering, particularly in the deprived areas of the country. The key objective is to encourage residents to take responsibility for keeping their neighbourhood clean and for educating their fellow residents, both young and old, to ensure that it stays that way. The activity involved in achieving this leads to much more than simply a clean community, such as improved community spirit, safer neighbourhoods and healthier residents in areas where people are most in need of such benefits.
