Become a Trustee

We need you to join the fight to make sure there is No Life Half Lived in Scotland.

One in five people in Scotland are living with a chest, heart or stroke condition. Too many are fighting alone and scared about the future. We won’t live with that.

This is your chance to become a Trustee and lead our efforts to help people live life to the full.

Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland is the country’s largest charity offering care and support to people with chest, heart and stroke conditions. Our network of stroke nurses, rehabilitation support workers, peer support volunteers and researchers help people across Scotland regain their confidence and rebuild their lives.

We have an ambitious strategy for the future. We plan to develop new services, increase our reach and significantly increase our income. You could join the team of ambitious and passionate Trustees to make our strategy happen.


We are recruiting up to five positions and would particularly like to hear from people with one or more of the following areas of knowledge, skills & experience:

  • Lived experience of our conditions
  • Business & commercial development
  • Health & safety
  • Health & social care
  • Fundraising
  • Retail
  • Legal
  • Marketing & public relations
  • Volunteer recruitment & support

Be part of a diverse Board full of new ideas

We welcome applications from everyone. However, following a recent governance review we would welcome applications from groups currently under represented on our Board including:

No Life Half Lived

No Life Half Lived means we need to listen to people with our conditions and deliver well for them. We have identified four goals to get us there:

  • We will place our focus on addressing the unmet needs of people with our conditions – social, emotional, and physical – across all Scotland’s communities.
  • We will be led by our people: people with lived experience of our conditions, their families & carers, friends, colleagues and healthcare professionals.
  • We will secure the funding required to deliver via a diverse income portfolio that is consistent with our values and ethical approach.
  • We will be effective and accountable in all that we do.
