Miranda Stoddart - trustee at The Archway Foundation
I joined in March this year as part of the young trustees programme. I sit on the trustee meetings to try and bring another perspective to the meetings, as well as learning about how being a trustee works and what it involves.
I do it because it is a great way to learn about being a trustee whilst also getting a chance to be involved in a charity that does really important work. It is interesting and rewarding.
Being a young trustee in my case benefits the community through the support of the Archway Foundation. It is an amazing charity which has an invaluable impact on loneliness in our community. I think in general, having a wider range of people being trustees can help make our community more cohesive and inspire more people to take notice of problems and do things to improve our community too.
