Trustee Vacancy

Jane Craig

Jane Craig

Founding Director

Would you like to make a difference to the lives of dyslexic children and adults in Hull and East Yorkshire? Dyslexia Sparks is Hull and East Yorkshire’s only registered charity for dyslexia. We are recruiting for Trustees who share our vision for a world where dyslexic individuals are recognised and celebrated for the unique talents and strengths that they have to offer.

As a Trustee, you’ll play a pivotal role in ensuring the continuing success of an organisation that has been helping dyslexic individuals to thrive since 2016.

Dyslexia Sparks’ mission is to support dyslexic individuals of all ages to unleash their inner spark and reach their full potential. Our professional services include diagnostic dyslexia assessments, specialist tuition, advice and guidance. We work with individuals, organisations and schools across the region delivering specialist services and training. We support the families of dyslexic individuals too with free parent/carer support groups and training events.

Our awareness-raising work promotes understanding and positivity around dyslexia. As the only charity for dyslexia and associated specific learning difficulties in the region, it is critical – now more than ever before – that we continue our vital work.

That’s where you come in.

We are looking for committed and skilled Trustees to complement our experienced, specialist team.
As a Trustee you’ll be a great ambassador for our charity – committed to supporting Dyslexia Sparks in achieving our mission and vision. You’ll provide governance, mentorship and strategic input, strengthening our ability to support a wider range and higher number of families in the future.

We are interested in hearing from individuals with a variety of skills and experience. Primarily, you will share our commitment to making a difference. Although it would be welcomed, previous Trustee experience is not necessary. Enthusiasm for and knowledge of our cause is.

For further details and an application pack, or for an informal discussion about the role, please contact our Founding Director, Jane Craig, at
