We are looking for motivated and skilled individuals to join our board and support the charity in its next stage of growth and development. In the short term we will be undertaking a change in our monitoring and evaluation process to include Theory to Change so that we are able to show the impact this organisation is having in the communities that we work. Alongside a key role in strategic thinking and influencing project leadership and management.

 

You will be able to think creatively, problem solve, speak your mind and make a commitment to attending one evening/morning meeting per month. A knowledge of our key themes above would be a bonus, as would experience or expertise in management, finance, marketing or running a business and/or an interest in the themed areas that we work in as above.

 

We are also looking to support new trustees who may have an interest and have not been a trustee before from a Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic communities. We are looking to address equality, diversity, and inclusion as a priority this year and it will help our Board to make more balanced decisions.

Equality and diversity are only effective and sustainable if the Board works to be inclusive, ensuring that all trustees are welcomed, valued and able to contribute.
