Could you be a trustee?

Real is recruiting Trustees! This is an exciting opportunity to gain voluntary experience for your CV. It’s also an opportunity to have your say on the future of disability equality in Tower Hamlets.

Many of us know what it’s like to have services cut, benefits reduced, and to feel like our voices are ignored. Having a strong Board means Real can use our experience to address these issues, including helping the council and other organisations support local people better.


You don’t need any special qualifications to be a Trustee – you just need to share our vision of an equal society for disabled people. We provide lots of support, including training and access support.
