The Trustees wish to appoint a number of new volunteer trustees to help support the long term development of the Farm.


The Board meets every other month, and Trustees would additionally be expected to spend a day, roughly every 3 months volunteering onsite or attending events and supporting fundraising activities. 

Main duties and responsibilities include:

  • Ensuring that Deen City Farm complies with its articles of association, charitable objectives and charity law.
  • Maintaining overall financial control and stability of the farm, ensuring that funds are spent appropriately and in line with our charitable objectives.
  • Assisting the management team with tasks as appropriate to your skills and experiences.
  • Contributing to the strategic direction of the organisation alongside the rest of the Board of Trustees and General Manager.
  • Input into and approve internal policies and procedures alongside the General Manager.
  • Safeguard the good name and values of Deen City Farm & Riding School.

Personal Specification:

  • An understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of trusteeship.
  • Good independent judgment
  • Strong communication
  • Friendly and approachable
  • Knowledge of and interest in animals and community farms is desirable.
  • Candidates who are local are desirable, but it is essential that you are able to travel to the farm for meetings, events and the odd day of volunteering.
  • We are particularly looking to recruit trustees who have education, building management, fundraising, equestrian or human resources experience/knowledge
