Blue Apple are seeking new Trustees

Could you offer your skills as a Trustee of our innovative charity? 

Blue Apple is a highly ambitious theatre and dance company which brings all the benefits of taking part in the performing arts to adults, children and young people with learning disabilities, and enables them to present high quality theatre, dance and film productions to the widest possible audience. The company started under the auspices of Winchester and District Mencap in 2005, but since 2012 has been an independent and highly successful charity. As part of our succession planning we are now seeking to appoint new trustees who can bring to our current board further skills, dedication and vision.

The charity is looking for trustees with experience and knowledge in one of the following areas:

  • Industry specific experience in the arts
  • Charity governance
  • Business planning
  • Marketing and communications
  • Finance management
  • Legal
  • HR

This is an exciting time to join Blue Apple as we build on a highly successful event at the Globe Theatre, London in Spring, 2016 gaining coverage from Channel 4 and international interest, and look forward with our artistic team to continue to build upon that success and develop the company.

To register  your interest in becoming a Board member for Blue Apple, please complete the application form and send to the charity’s Chair of Trustees, Georgiana Robertson at by 16 December 2016

If you would like to have an informal discussion please email Georgiana Robertson at to arrange a telephone call/meeting.

Help us make a difference

Blue Apple is dedicated to empowering people through theatre, dance and film. We are committed to make a growing impact on the most pressing issues facing people with learning disabilities – issues they share with many others in our community. 

This is an exciting time. Blue Apple is in its 10th year and we’re grateful for Big Lottery funding which has enabled our staffing structure to grow and for Blue Apple to start to take its high quality workshops out into the wider communities of Hampshire.

However for Blue Apple to continue, we need to match the Lottery funding pound for pound. We can only do this through the support of individuals, organisations and Trusts who generously donate money, time and expertise to enable Blue Apple to thrive.

Blue Apple uses theatre to transform lives and campaign for change. Please consider supporting us by making a donation or becoming a Friend of Blue Apple.
