“Working with Self Injury Support has unified my combined passion for research, gender specific care and mental health advocacy, all of which are delivered with heart-felt kindness and real empathy. I am continually inspired by the outstanding work of Self Injury Support and I am honoured to be able to contribute towards their cause.” - Caitlin, former trustee
Our trustees come from a variety of backgrounds and make valuable contributions to ensure that Self Injury Support can continue to provide vital support to women affected by self-injury.

"My name is Eilish and I am the Co-chair of the Board of Trustees. I have worked in the non-profit sector for almost a decade, with my work focusing on Project Management, Relationship Building and Fundraising. My career has taken me all over the world and I have had the opportunity to work with so many amazing organisations. I was drawn to volunteering with Self Injury Support because I too suffered with compulsive self injury for more than 10 years. At the time, I didn't have the information or support needed to fully understand my journey. So, when I realised that an organisation out there was supporting women just like me to overcome challenges much like mine, and that they needed industry professionals to help them do it, I signed right up. It has been an amazing experience and I am so proud of everything SIS does."
"I have volunteered with female empowerment and mental health charities in the Bristol area for over ten years, and am a passionate advocate for providing services for marginalised groups and individuals who can’t access the frontline support they might need. As co-chair of Trustees, I am excited and proud to shape the governance component for SIS’s fantastic and dedicated team, as the organisation develops and builds on its services. Post-pandemic, our staff and volunteer expertise and unique skillsets are needed more than ever."

"I began as a volunteer on the helpline and TESS services for several years, before becoming a Trustee with SIS. I am passionate about the work we do, and continually inspired by everyone who works and volunteers there.
