The Board

We aim to hold four quarterly board meetings per year (March, June, September, December), plus strategy and community engagement and individual support days.

We are currently seeking Board Members who have the following experience/interests; however, all are welcome to apply and interview.

Safeguarding
We would like to hear from people with safeguarding experience to ensure that our staff and stakeholders are protected and kept safe from a company perspective. It would be ideal for this candidate to have over 3 years of safeguarding experience.

Fundraising
We are keen to hear from individuals who have fundraising and bid writing experience as it pertains to grants. Grant funding will be a large part of our income moving forward and it’s vital that we have someone on board who understands this process and can help us navigate this properly.
