We are seeking Trustees who...

  • are progressive in their views and outlook

  • are interested in being part of a radical, courageous, and compelling organization

  • want to support us as we continue our journey

Becoming a board member for brap is more than just an opportunity to support one of the most credible and progressive equality charities in the country. It’s an opportunity to be part of something. To be part of a national movement to rethink approaches to equality and human rights. We believe that the challenges of inequality in a global, modern and increasingly diverse and complex society cannot be met without seriously reflecting on and revising how we think about equity and how we support the practice of equality.

Deadline for receipt of applications is Friday 10 June 2022.

Interview dates will be Tuesday 5 July and Wednesday 6 July 2022.

Volunteering, and the energy and expertise that can be brought to the organisation through this process, is very important to us. Every year, brap offers opportunities to dozens of volunteers and interns whose commitment and enthusiasm is vital to helping us achieve our aim of making equality a reality.


What we can offer you:

  • work experience in an exciting, forward thinking organisation.

  • training and personal development opportunities – we want you to have a richer experience than just photocopying and filing!

  • flexible opportunities that are shaped to fit your availability


brap is always on the lookout for volunteers with an interest in: policy and research; training; administration; community development work; youth work; support to deliver on the ground projects.


For more details about the volunteer roles we're currently looking for, just send us an email. Remember we're also open to your suggestions for particular work (for instance you may have a project in mind that links into an issue you're currently studying). Please put as much information in your enquiry as you can.



We will try to reimburse you for all or part of your travel expenses. This will depend on your travel costs and the number of days you are in the office; it will be agreed in the initial volunteer meeting.
