Are you looking to make a real difference to a local community charily? Do you have good business skills that can help make that difference? Do you have at least 2-3 hours a month that you could give to provide support?

Livestock is a charity that works within the community, running arts groups, events and performances to support, educate and entertain.

The main project is Mothers Uncovered which is a creative support network for (mostly new) mothers. It is to provide a support service to mothers through workshops and arts projects. We give women the chance to talk openly and honestly about their feelings and experiences, without fear of judgement. It is also to give women the chance to celebrate and mark this point in their lives. 

The charity also presents SoulFood - community food workshops. SoulFood runs events in schools, food banks and community centres to get participants excited about food and feeling confident in sharing food skills and ideas.

Lastly, our thespians present events and m/others uncorked which is immersive, improvised shows dealing with social issues.

We are looking for trustees with business skills to support us in helping us to run the charity better and to share in shaping the next steps and future of Livestock.
