It’s a vital and stimulating role, ensuring the charity is not only reaching its goals, but is forward-thinking and running as efficiently as possible. Working closely with the Chief Executive you will set the direction of the organisation and make key decisions on how the charity operates to meets its goals and moves it forward.
Being a Trustee is a great way to enhance your professional development goals while making a difference to a cause that is meaningful to you. It allows you to develop new skills or apply existing skills to new real-life situations, meet new people and network—all whilst bringing a sense of fulfilment to yourself and those you are helping.
We have an established, skilled and experienced Board of Trustees but recognise we need to broaden our knowledge of income generation, organisational development and digital communications. We are therefore seeking motivated and committed individuals to join our Board.
If you have recent working knowledge in this area and are interested in making a positive difference for carers and their families in Tower Hamlets then we would like to hear from you.
It is important to us that our Board reflects the diversity of the carers we serve. We welcome applicants from all sections of our community irrespective of age, disability, gender, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation or other personal circumstances.
