At TOP UK we know how distressing and overwhelming OCD and phobias can be. Nearly 40 years of

experience tells us that both conditions have a hugely negative impact on people’s lives. Fear and

anxiety are incredibly unpleasant emotions and to frequently experience these emotions on a large

scale is traumatic and debilitating. No one deserves that.

At TOP UK we also know that OCD and phobias are poorly understood, under-funded and

stigmatised despite affecting millions of people. OCD and phobia sufferers often tell us how

misunderstanding of their conditions leaves them feeling isolated, alone and afraid to seek help. At

TOP UK, we believe no one should feel alone in facing their fears.

It is an exciting but testing time at TOP UK and we have just launched an ambitious three-year

strategy. While we are eager to embark on this new stage of development for our organisation it

comes with an acknowledgment that we are working in particularly uncertain and stressful times

and there is a greater need to grow our service than ever before. Demand for our service is at an all-

time high and continues to grow, currently dramatically outstripping our capacity. Mental health

services are at breaking point leaving those with OCD and Phobias often finding it impossible to find

help and dealing with debilitating conditions alone.

Meeting this demand will be a challenge, but it is a challenge we are ready and willing to push for

but in order to grow and build our organisation we are keen to evolve, enhance and diversify our

Board of Trustees.

The role is open to those from the public, private and voluntary sectors. You should be someone with a genuine interest in mental health and we are ideally looking for individuals with any of the following experience: Charity Governance; IT & Digital; Marketing, Communications and Brand; Fundraising: Diversity and Inclusion.

TOP UK also particularly welcomes applications from black and minority ethnic candidates and candidates from the LGBTQ+ community as they are currently under represented in our organisation.

All board meetings are virtual and take place every other month, for a duration of 2-3 hours. Further time commitments could involve 2-3 hours a month, depending on how involved you would like to be.
