Board of Trustees

The Junction could not do the vital work they do without the support of the Board of Trustees who have overall responsibility for the organisation.

The current board members are:


Sophie Ewen – Vice Chair, Tina Stewart – Treasurer and Lorna Blyth.

Are you passionate about young people and mental health?

The Junction is an award-winning charity that takes a holistic approach towards young people’s health and well-being. We work with 12-21 year olds in North East Edinburgh doing one-to-one support, counselling, creative projects and more.

We are looking for committed individuals, ideally with some HR experience, to join the board of trustees. If you have time, are willing to ask questions and share our values of equality, transparency and community then we would love to hear from you.

Duties/tasks for the year include:

* Attend 4 board meetings

* Attend or dial-in to 4 informal meetings with board members

* Contribute to a sub-group that meets roughly 4 times – a team of staff and board members

* Attend 2 Development Days with staff and/or trustees (usually but not always a Saturday in Spring and Autumn)

If you are open to a new opportunity, looking to contribute to a community and to develop your skills please submit an expression of interest to and we can arrange a chat over the phone to take it from there.
