• What’s involved?

    Trustees
    Our Trustee Board oversees AMEND’s operations and sets the charity’s strategy. For more information see the ‘How we are governed’ tab on our homepage.  To view our current Trustee Board members, please click here.

    The work of AMEND in the UK is divided between several Trustee-led committees with differing responsibilities. Meetings are usually held by free Skype conference call in order to involve our international volunteers. We are always keen to hear from anyone who might be able to lend their expertise to the following committees:

    Programmes Committee
    This Committee is split into 2 subcommittees: Research & Development, and Patient Support & Information. Between them this group of Trustees and volunteers is responsible for AMEND’s support services (e.g. Counselling) and production of patient information resources, as well as the AMEND Research Awards and International Development. This Committee is also responsible for developing the charity’s new programmes, and monitoring existing ones.

    Website, Social Media and Information Technology Committee
    This Committee is responsible for maintaining AMEND’s online presence and addressing all of the charity’s IT needs. The website and social media are vital to AMEND’s communication channels with patients around the world.

    The Trustees of AMEND also work on other Committees, such as Governance, Remuneration and Finance, and assist with advising patient new groups on their route to independence.
