Good Neighbours UK (GNUK) is an independent, self-governing, international humanitarian and development organisation set up in 2019 in York, with charitable status since 2020.

Our goal is to support communities to create sustainable and lasting solutions to their development needs. Our core areas of work focus on women and child rights, education, health, water and sanitation and climate change.

GNUK is an affiliate of Good Neighbors International, which was founded in South Korea in 1991 and has members in over 40 countries.  GNUK is one of seven support offices within the Good Neighbors family which raise funds for development and humanitarian projects through grant applications and public fundraising.

To help us achieve our aims and ensure we are effectively managed we are looking for dynamic and inspiring new members to join our Board of Trustees. As a trustee, you will have a passion for our mission and a desire make a difference to communities in the poorest parts of the world. Your input will help us to determine the strategic focus and direction of Good Neighbours UK.

We are also looking for a motivated and determined new Chair of Trustees who can continue to lead and inspire our Board and inspire clear strategic direction and priorities. You will contribute your skills and experience to add to the expertise of our diverse Board. Team development, enthusiasm and tenacity are equally as important as knowledge of international humanitarian or development issues.

We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, ages and abilities.
