Are you interested in supporting young women to have the best chance in life? Do you want to promote independence and a bright new future? If you have free time, skills and enthusiasm to put to good use, why not become a Board Member / Trustee for Elpis Trust in Glasgow – for full information.
Elpis Trust provides accommodation and support in Ruchill and Maryhill, North-West Glasgow for 18 young women (aged 16 – 24) who have been through the care system, have been affected by homelessness or have been unaccompanied asylum seekers. Our dedicated managers and staff team provide personal and life skills, and emotional and mental health support, to help young women transition to independence. We work closely with Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Health and Social Care Partnership, Maryhill Housing Association – and funders including Bank of Scotland Foundation, The Robertson Trust, Agnes M Hunter Trust and the Volant Foundation – to really make a difference to the lives of the young women.
As one of our residents said ‘Thanks you for all you have done and how much you have helped me. When I first arrived, I was lost, hurt and confused. But you all helped show me who I was and what I could do if I believed. I will never forget you’.
Elpis is 50 years old in 2024 and in an exciting period of development as we plan a new service for young mothers and their babies, alongside strengthening organisational governance and functioning. We are looking for energetic people to help us deliver our Strategic Plan 2021 – 2024 by joining our committed team of Board Members / Trustees. Everyone is welcome and we are very interested in people with skills and experience in one or more of the following areas:

• Communications
• Fundraising
• Influencing and Networking
• Service Development

To better reflect those who use our service, young people are especially encouraged to get involved. Elpis Board meets bi-monthly currently via Zoom and Board sub-groups – Finance and Services – meet in between. For further information, please contact Brian McAlinden (Chair) on by July 31st 2021 in the first instance.
