LASSN is run by a small group of Trustees, who are there to make sure our work always reflects our vision and values, and is a well-run organisation.

Some of our Trustees have experiencing of volunteering with LASSN, and some do not. Some have experience of seeking asylum or forced migration, and some do not. Some have been Trustees before and for some people it’s all new.

What matters most is that our Trustees reflects the interests and concerns of people involved with LASSN, and that our Trustees have the knowledge and experience to help guide and support our work. With their support we are able to achieve huge amounts – as detailed in our Annual Report and Accounts, and Annual Review

Every year or so, our Trustees review the knowledge and experience of existing Trustees and work out where we might have gaps, or areas we want to strengthen. The last time Trustees did this (in March 2019) they decided LASSN should prioritise getting more Trustees who are

  • people with experience of seeking refuge in the UK
  • women (our Chair and our Deputy Chair are both women, but we want to recruit more)
  • people with financial or accounting skills (our existing Treasurer is due to step down in Spring 2019)
  • people who have experience of working in refugee or asylum focused projects

Like all volunteer roles at LASSN we provide a comprehensive induction and ongoing support, and out of pocket expenses.

If you are interested in finding out more about the role, please get in touch with [email protected] or call 0113 373 1759

If you are not an existing volunteer with LASSN, we also ask that you complete an online volunteer application form. When you do – someone will be in touch very soon to talk about next steps.

Here’s a description of the role – what’s involved, and what kind of time commitment Trustees make
