About Forces in Mind Trust

Forces in Mind Trust was founded in November 2011 by a £35 million endowment from the Big Lottery Fund, now the National Lottery Community Fund.  As a member of Cobseo – the Confederation of Service Charities – and a permanent member of its Executive Committee, the Trust works within the Armed Forces charities sector, and much more widely, to support the United Kingdom’s Armed Forces Community. 

All Trustees are expected to have empathy with the United Kingdom’s Armed Forces Community, but direct military experience is not required.

The Trust operates across the United Kingdom, and applications from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are particularly welcome.  The Trust is committed to equality and diversity and we encourage applications from females, and from all sections of the LGBT community and black and minority ethnic communities.  Most of the Directors’ work takes place in the Trust’s offices, which are fully accessible, and so we also welcome interest from those who may have additional needs.

To apply

Expressions of interest comprising a cover letter and CV totalling not more than 4 sides should be sent to by Friday 31 July 2020.  All applications will be acknowledged, and those with whom the Trust wishes to take forward discussions will be personally informed before the end of July.

We support UK foundations and grant-making charities
