Registered as a charity in 2010 The Thomas Project (formally known as Family Guidance and Community Welfare), has been serving the community of Aldridge and surrounding areas for over 30 years.

We were founded with the clear purpose of relieving hardship, need and distress, and the advancement of the Christian religion in our local community and beyond. We are currently working on creating an ambitious strategic plan for the next few years, which will support us to help to those in need, provide a safe and welcoming space for people, share our faith with those seeking spiritual guidance, and strengthen and grow the charity.

We deliver a number of activities that help those in need, including our twice weekly food bank a walking group, arts and crafts group, IT access and training, employment support and additional support to people in financial hardship.

We are seeking people with a variety of skills and experience to enrich the board, including (but not exclusively) charity finance and governance, human resources, marketing and fundraising. We would like our board to reflect the diversity of the communities we live in and support, and we seek people who can offer fresh-thinking and bring their talent to The Thomas Project. You do not need to have been a Trustee before.

This is a voluntary role requiring approximately up to 5 hours a month commitment. Meetings are currently held via Zoom. All Trustees will be subject to a DBS check.
