What’s in it for you

Thank you so much for your interest in a position on the Active Sussex Board. The Board is made up of a group of volunteer Non-Executive Directors who commit time and energy to supporting the team that makes an impact on the lives and wellbeing of people from across Sussex. We bring a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences but have the same passion and common interest in how we do this for the benefit of the organisation.


We know increased physical activity can have a transformational impact on people’s lives, especially for those that move the least. Achieving this requires Active Sussex to be working at a system level with a wide and complex network of partners and stakeholders - from community engagement to strategic influence.


As Trustees we are ambassadors, allies and influencers, and are committed to tackling inequalities and ensuring we prioritise removing barriers to participation in the systems which we work. With several trustee terms coming to an end, including the Chair, we are now looking for new people to join our Board and support the Trust in delivering its strategy - Getting Sussex Moving - by addressing inequality and empowering everyone in Sussex to be active in a way that works for them. There is no right or wrong background for this voluntary role and we are keen to harness the passion and interest you have for the benefit of people in our county.
