Challenge yourself, make a difference, meet new people - we need you to join our council of governors!Governors speech bubble

Our election process is now underway giving you the chance to stand, or nominate someone to stand, for governor in your local consituency.

Our governors represent the views of the communities we look after to help us improve our services and give feedback on any changes.

We are running roadshows throughout spring so you can find out more, with nominations for governor candidates open until May.

For 2018-19 we have vacancies in the following constituencies:

  • Bury
  • Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale
  • Oldham
  • Stockport
  • Tameside and Glossop
  • Trafford
  • Rest of England
  • Staff groups

If you want to stand as a candidate, you must also be a member of the Trust. To nominate yourself you will need to complete and return a candidate nomination form, including a brief statement on why you want to become a governor.

If there is more than one candidate for a seat, a list of candidates will be published and members will be given the opportunity to vote for their constituency or staff group. The election is independent and run on our behalf by an external company.
