Job description

Chair Designate Trustee and Trustees

Travel and expenses paid

These voluntary unpaid roles involve giving up your valuable time a number of days a year, but you’ll be helping people with learning disabilities, autism, acquired brain injuries and other complex needs get the support they need to lead a full and happy life.

Walsingham Support specialises in the provision of support both at home and in the heart of the community. Indeed, we’ve been supporting individuals with learning disabilities, autism, acquired brain injuries, and complex needs for 35 years. This year, we’ll have a turnover of around £30m, with income primarily coming from Statutory Authorities. We’re now looking for compassionate and committed individuals to become Trustees and help drive the charity forward in the future.

Running a successful registered charity that supports over 500 people across 100 locations calls for experience in a broad range of areas.  These include professional, academic, lived experience, learning disabilities, health & social care management, human resources, finance, digital and regulatory matters.

We will also be seeking a Chair Designate with significant health & social care experience.

We would like to recruit a range of individuals with lived experiences of social care and perspectives in the charity at every level and to increase the diversity of our leadership. Accordingly, we would particularly welcome applications from groups who are currently under-represented among the Trustees, including young people, people with a disability and people of colour and ethnic minority heritage.

If you have experience in one or more of these key areas, this is your chance to be involved in shaping the direction of a nationwide charity where it’s not just about the support we deliver, but the happiness we can provide.

As a Trustee, you’ll make a vital contribution to the Board's responsibility for the governance of the organisation and help ensure we apply our resources exclusively to pursue our charitable objectives.

Walsingham Support’s Board meetings take place 6 times a year which includes an away day. The meetings  take place virtually and face to face.  For the Chair position, there will more commitment required in terms of additional times to meet throughout the year.

No previous Trustee experience is required for this role - we also offer mentorship and full training on the Trustee role. All expenses will be reimbursed when attending meetings and training. We also offer all the equipment necessary to attend virtual meetings.

We would particularly welcome any specific knowledge or experience you have to help the Board reach sound decisions. This could involve considering papers, leading discussions, focusing on key issues or providing advice on new initiatives, or other issues relevant to one of more of the areas of work mentioned above in which you have specific expertise.

Above all, we are looking for a passion for the work we do and a real desire to make a genuine difference for the people we support. If that sounds like you, please email Sue Sowerby, Advising Consultant using the link provided, with a covering letter indicating your area of expertise and CV with location and full contact details. Sue will then contact you to arrange a discussion and to provide support information. 

Closing date: 11 June 2021

As Walsingham Support meets the requirements in respect of exempted questions under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, all applicants who are offered employment with us will be subject to a criminal record check from the Disclosure and Barring Service before the appointment is confirmed. This will include details of cautions, reprimands or final warnings, as well as convictions.

Walsingham Support is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
