Become a Trustee


 ‪Are you an ‪accounting professional looking to use your skills and experience to support a local charity and give something back to your local community.

 SWEDA supports people affected by Eating Disorders, across Somerset and beyond.  Our current team of Trustees are a bunch of professionals including a Solicitor, GP and Fundraiser, using their skills to help lead our charity.  We are now looking for a Finance Trustee (Volunteer) who can provide practical support to our CEO.

 If you have a couple of hours to spare a month and would like to join our friendly team or would like more information, then please contact Paula Blight CEO on 01749 343344.

Trustees are responsible for the running of the Charity and are there to assist in making major decisions in the best interest of the Charity and their members. Decisions are made as a group. Trustees are nominated and voted onto the Board at the Annual General Meeting.

If you would like to be involved in this way, please send an expression of interest to be considered. Some background knowledge of an eating disorder would be advantageous, or some other relevant experience, such as NHS or management.

“I had consistently been losing weight for more than 8 months and had become accustomed to eating very little. This triggered a return of my anorexia, after a 20-year period of recovery. SWEDA were able to offer me an appointment the very next day. When we met I was feeling very ill and frightened.I spoke to them about my fears, but then took the decision to go to my doctor on the way home. I was admitted to hospital within a few days.”
