Income Generation Trustee
It’s time the UK got to grips with guts!
Our research shows that 58% of people are embarrassed to talk about their digestive condition or symptoms. 51% of people delay seeking advice for their symptoms for over 6 months.
Our mission at Guts UK is to provide expert, evidenced based information, raise public awareness and fund life-changing and life-saving research.
Research into our guts is woefully underfunded and has been for decades.
We should rival levels of investment into heart and cancer research but alas, we are way short of this. How come the guts got left behind? There are too many unanswered questions and too many conditions that lack effective treatments. We need to be a £10 million charity to make the kind of impact needed by society and, whilst this is an ambitious goal, we are already on the right track.
An Income Generation Trustee could change Guts UK for the better
Your expertise and engagement will play an essential role in strengthening the board of trustees. Our strategic objective is to expose and address the stigma surrounding digestive health whilst educating and informing the public on the importance of the issue. We aim to transform Guts UK into more outward facing organisation backed and supported by a strong community of health care professionals and beneficiaries. This is in a context of reduced NHS support due to budget constraints and, as such, the Income Generation Trustee will also be a key contributor to Guts UK’s fundraising strategy. Your contribution will be fundamental to the growth of the organisation as well as its long-term sustainability and success.
