Help us change lives – we are looking for two new trustees…….


SMASH is the youth mentoring charity that serves Swindon. We believe that it only takes one person to change a life. We do this through volunteer youth mentoring, group work and practical advice and support for our young people and their families and guardians.

We help 9-19 year olds, who have or are suffering trauma or difficulties, regain control of their lives. Thanks to our dedicated and hardworking team we are proud to say that 86% of our young people report an increase in control and go on to continue to make self directed positive change.

“I beg anyone to please choose this charity because I cannot say this without tears but it really does change our children’s life for the better. I hate to think where my son would be now without SMASH, it doesn’t bear thinking about”. – Parent.

To ensure we can continue to help the children of Swindon whilst maintaining our high standards, within a changing strategic landscape, we are looking to appoint two new Trustees to join the Board in its role as governing body; setting policy, strategy and ensuring robust governance and financial control.

We are keen to bring additional skills to our Board through the appointment of individuals who ideally have a background in one of the following areas:

  • Financial experience
  • Educational experience
  • Clinical experience in relation to young people

If you would like to be part of an inspirational team of people, who find meaning and purpose in driving change and making a positive contribution to society – please contact us for a chat.
