We would like to invite anyone who has been a full individual UKCP member for at least 2 years and who is in good standing to consider becoming a trustee.

As part of our aim of increasing diversity and improving equality and diversity practice within the profession, UKCP is seeking to increase the diversity of its board members. We would therefore welcome applications from under-represented and disadvantaged groups including people from black and minority ethnic communities, people with disabilities and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

If you are interested in standing and would like to discuss this further with either our Chief Executive, Sarah Niblock, our Chair, Martin Pollecoff, or one of our current UKCP trustees, please contact Alex Crawford (UKCP Governance Officer) who will make the arrangements. Alex’s contact details are:
