Volunteers’ Week 2022: Trustees

1st June 2022

Trustees are a vital voluntary role to any charity – they make sure it is run in the interests of the people it is there to support. Trustees ensure their charity has a clear strategy, and that its work and goals are in line with its vision.

Music in Hospitals & Care is fortunate to have trustees from a range of backgrounds who bring different skills and experience to the charity. At our last Annual General Meeting, we welcomed three new people:

Atheer Al-Salim

Atheer is a communications expert with 20 years’ experience working in the PR and social media industry. He is currently European Head of Social at a global sports and fashion retailer.

Dimple Keen

Dimple is a senior manager in healthcare with experience in NHS operations and quality assurance, and improvement in clinical services across the UK and Ireland.

Angharad Thomas

Angharad is a communications expert with experience across the public and charity sectors, including a national older people’s charity and a parliamentary watchdog.

“Music often plays a huge part in people’s lives, which makes my role as a trustee for Music in Hospitals & Care particularly rewarding. As someone new to trusteeship, the support I’ve received in my first six months has been second to none. I’m proud to use my professional skills and experience in support of the charity’s hardworking staff and musicians.”


Become a trustee

We are now looking to recruit an additional finance trustee to our Board of Trustees, providing an opportunity to combine a love of live music with your accountancy and financial expertise.

Preferably you will have an understanding of charity finance and investment in addition to your accountancy qualification, but we welcome hearing from any experienced accountancy professionals who are passionate about the work the charity does.

You don’t need to have experience as a trustee or being on a board before – we offer a comprehensive induction programme, training and development. Find out more and apply by 27 June 2022.
