Why Join Us?

Imagine being part of a movement that brings joy, sparks memories, and fosters connections through music every day. By becoming a Trustee at Lost Chord UK, you can help shape a future where music transforms lives. We’re looking for dedicated, innovative, and compassionate individuals to join our friendly and committed Board. Your skills and enthusiasm can make a profound difference as we work together to improve the quality of life for those affected by dementia and other neurological conditions. Join us and be a part of something truly special.

As we celebrate our 25th Anniversary, we’re excited to launch our Silver Appeal. Our goal is to reach 25 new community and care locations from Scarborough to Glasgow and beyond. We’re committed to making a lasting impact and have embarked on our Theory of Change journey to become entirely user-led, with innovative, collaborative, and evidence-based interventions,

Maximise Your Impact

Operating on a tight budget, our small but perfectly formed agile management team ensures every resource is maximised and used to benefit our beneficiaries. If you love music and believe in its power to uplift people through interactive music, as we enter a year of celebration and growth there’s simply never a better time to join us. Your skills and experience will make a significant difference.

Who We’re Looking For?

We welcome applications from anyone who would like to be considered as a Board member. However, we are particularly keen to hear from individuals with specialist knowledge, skills, and lived or learned experience in the following areas:

  • Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Champion: Practical and current experience with inclusive and diverse communities to ensure our initiatives are inclusive and equitable.
  • Legal Matters or Charity Investment: Expertise in legal contracts or charity investments to guide us through financial and legal obligations.
  • Charity Events or Community Fundraising: Skills of working in the community fundraising and events to help us build impactful events and secure the necessary funding.
  • HR and Volunteering Management: Experience to oversee and develop our volunteer programs.

While experience in the not-for-profit sector is highly desirable, it is not essential.

Time Commitment

Our Board meets four times a year (afternoons or evenings) in South Yorkshire. Additionally, subcommittees meet remotely once a quarter between board meetings, with opportunities to visit our interactive music events throughout the year. We strive to ensure our Board reflects the diverse communities we serve.
