Trustee Recruitment

Application deadline - Ongoing

EMMS International, an international Christian healthcare charity with its roots in one of the oldest medical missionary societies in the world, is looking for new trustees.

We have adapted our operating model over time to reflect changing needs but pioneering healthcare work through our partners in Malawi, India and Nepal remains at our core. In recent years, palliative care has been our major focus although we are also actively involved in reducing the impact of disease (including most recently COVID-19).  In all our work, we also address inequalities for people who are excluded and marginalised through education, training and development.
