We are recruiting for up to three new Voluntary Board members for a charity based in London N17

Since 1976 the charity have been providing innovative housing, support, and care solutions to people in need. Whether they are providing care and support in partnership with local authorities or supporting people via direct payments, their aim is always for the individual to determine what kind of support they offer. The focus is on enabling people to have greater choice, independence, and control over how they live their lives. The Charity manage supported housing for over 500 people and work across 10 London Boroughs providing services to a wide range of people including people on the Autistic Spectrum and people with learning disabilities.

What is the role?

The charity are looking for high-calibre individuals who can demonstrate a clear understanding of the challenges being faced, and who are genuinely passionate about the positive impact that good social care can make. Perhaps you already have experience as a Trustee and want a new challenge, or perhaps you have relevant skills and are looking for your first opportunity to join a Board and be involved in a large and successful charity.

What are we looking for?

The charity wants their Board to reflect the diversity of the communities they serve and welcome applicants from all parts of the community.

They are now strategically looking to strengthen their Board in the following specific areas.

IT, systems and communications – During 2020 the charity successfully made changes to work and communicate in the new Covid world and now want to strengthen the Board with someone able to bring further knowledge and expertise to take this work onto the next stage.
Experience and knowledge in managing and/or developing care and support services, particularly for people who have high care and support needs.
Fund Raising – Last year the Charity has been re-invigorating their efforts to raise funds to support key areas of their charitable activities, in particular to support their activity holiday breaks for people with learning disabilities and their volunteer community work.
