Trustees wanted for Hammersmith & Fulham charity
We want to ensure we reflect the wide range of people in the borough
Bishop Creighton House (BCH), established in 1908, runs projects for older and disabled people and families with children under five.
Despite the challenges of the pandemic, we continue to offer vital services for the most vulnerable, promoting their independence: from enabling people to make friendships, develop their interests and find work; to helping them feel safe and secure at home, avoiding residential care.
We want to recruit more trustees. Our trustees are responsible for developing strategy, providing governance and directing the charity towards achieving its mission.
Trustees, who are volunteers, meet ten times per year. We have well advanced plans to redevelop our popular community centre, on Lillie Road in Fulham, with building work due to begin in early 2021, so it’s an exciting time to become a trustee. An induction as well as training on being a trustee and governance matters will be offered. Trustees are unpaid but reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.
We are particularly interested in applications from the diverse range of groups we are here to help, including those from BAME populations and the LGBTQ+ community.
As an organisation that embraces diversity and accessibility, BCH is committed to representing the communities we serve and ensuring inclusion in everything we do.
As well as ensuring we are a diverse board, we are interested in people who have skills and experience in any of the following:
- social work
- business and finance
- building development
Above all, you will need a commitment to social justice and improving the lives of disadvantaged people in Hammersmith & Fulham and surrounding areas.
To apply, please contact Lee Smith, chair of the board of trustees.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
