We will shortly be celebrating our 35th anniversary and are excited by our plans for growth and further development. We have a strong, experienced and committed Trustee Board and are looking for suitably experienced individuals interested in working with us as new Trustees. Whilst not essential, skills or experience in any of the following areas would be helpful:
• Housing management/housing association background
• Property development
• Homelessness services
• Relevant client groups e.g. mental health, learning disabilities, young person’s services
• Community development particularly working with BAME communities
Applicants with lived experience of mental health would be very welcome. Trustee meetings are held six weekly on alternate Wednesday late afternoon/evenings and Friday mornings.
The Trustee role is voluntary and therefore not remunerated, but relevant travel expenses are paid.
More details about the role can be found here
