Good Vibrations is a national arts organisation that changes lives through music. We work with some of the most vulnerable and hard to reach people in the UK, including in prisons, secure hospitals, and in the community. We are best known for using the Indonesian gamelan, a magnificent set of bronze gongs, xylophones and drums. We use communal music-making to support vulnerable people in challenging circumstances to develop transferable life and work skills and to forge fulfilling, constructive lives.
We have an outstanding track record, with the impact of our work evidenced through nine independent pieces of academic research, including by Cambridge University and the University of London.
Bill Bailey supports our work as a patron. We are a Registered UK Learning Provider and OCNL Qualification Centre and hold National High Secure Prison Effective Intervention Status.
We are looking for new people to join our Board of Trustees as three members are reaching the end of their tenure. This is a very rewarding voluntary position with an ambitious charity.
We are looking for people with experience of one (or more) of the following areas:
- Lived experience of challenging circumstances / complex needs
- The Criminal Justice System
- The arts / music in particular
- Business development
- Financial management
We would especially welcome applications from people with lived experience of the issues pertaining to our participants.
This is a voluntary governance role for which your travel expenses would be covered. Trustees are asked to commit to 4 Board meetings in London, 1 strategic development day, preparation and subcommittee membership. They are also asked for help by sharing their skills on developmental projects. We are particularly interested in people who have experienced the issues participants of our courses have experienced.
