Forever Hounds Trust is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and homing of unwanted, abused or abandoned greyhounds, lurchers and other sighthounds.  The charity is independent from the greyhound racing industry.

Forever Hounds Trust is a medium sized charity with approaching £1 million income, 600 volunteers and 60 dogs in our care at any one time. However we only employ a small team of permanent staff and have no paid Directors. As a result we look to our Trustees to bring their individual expertise to work closely with the Departmental Heads to support the operations of the Charity. We are are looking to strengthen the Board of Trustees and would also be particularly interested in hearing from people with HR expertise. We are looking for someone who has the time to make a real contribution both at and between trustee meetings, engage in the range of projects we have underway and support our Departmental Heads in their roles.

The Board of Trustees meets on a quarterly basis, usually on Saturdays at our office near Oxford. Conference calls may be held between meetings depending on current projects.  There is frequent communication by email between Trustees, Departmental Heads and other stakeholders. The positions are voluntary and unpaid, although reasonable travelling expenses are reimbursed as per our expenses policy.
