About Step Forward

Step Froward is a local charity providing free and confidential services, including counselling, personal development, mindfulness, wellbeing activities and LGBTQ support for young people aged 11-25, living in and around Tower Hamlets, East London.

Founded in the 1980s, we seek to provide a safe and supportive space for young people, with a friendly, qualified team with multiple skills offering one-to-one sessions, group sessions, workshops, fun and healthy activities.

Trustee role


We are recruiting for a number of voluntary positions to join our Board of Trustees to help shape our work now and in the future. We have a strong Trustee Board and are now looking to add to this with the recruitment of up to four new Trustees.

 We have a diverse Trustee Board and welcome candidates from a wide variety of backgrounds and socio-economic groups. All applications are welcome but we are especially interested in bringing on board individuals with specific experience in at least one of the following areas:

social care, mental health, safety and safeguarding, IT, charity governance, working with young people, fundraising.


The expected commitment will be 4-6 evenings per annum plus additional hours as may be needed supporting individual projects or initiatives. This includes quarterly Board meetings (by conference or in person in East London) for approximately two hours.
