We’re on the look out for Wired4Music members to become Sound Connections trustees.

Sound Connections is a music education charity with a mission to develop, enable and empower young Londoners through music. It works in partnership with other organisations to strengthen and fill gaps in music provision so that all children and young people have access to music opportunities. Sound Connections hosts Wired4Music, the network for Londoners age 16-25 and interested in music.

Sound Connections, the organisation that hosts Wired4Music, is seeking to appoint two members of Wired4Music (age 18-25) as trustees.


What is a trustee?
“Trustees have overall control of a charity and are responsible for making sure it’s doing what it was set up to do. Trustees are the people who lead the charity and decide how it is run. Being a trustee means making decisions that will impact on people’s lives. Depending on what the charity does, you will be making a difference to your local community or to society as a whole. Trustees use their skills and experience to support their charities, helping them achieve their aims. Trustees also often learn new skills during their time on the board.” Taken from Government guidance – https://www.gov.uk/guidance/charity-trustee-whats-involved

As a trustee you have legal responsibility for the charity’s management and administration. More information can be found via the following link:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-essential-trustee-what-you-need-to-know-cc3/the-essential-trustee-what-you-need-to-know-what-you-need-to-do

Legally you must be age 18 or over in order to be a trustee.

As Sound Connections is also a Company Limited by Guarantee, trustees automatically become a Company Director.
