Job description

Alternative Futures Group – Trustees    

Location:          Meetings held in Prescot

Salary:             Unremunerated, but expenses paid

With a turnover of over £60m, and over 2,500 staff, Alternative Futures Group is one of the largest health and social care charities in the country, and currently supports around 1,200 people across the UK with life-enhancing, person-centred support.

A proudly north western organisation, we work locally in the community and through our Treatment and Recovery Centres to provide a wide range of innovative and bespoke care services to people with a diverse range of care needs, including:

  • Learning Disabilities
  • Physical Disabilities
  • Mental Health Concerns
  • Substance misuse issues
  • Complex care
  • Autism
  • Young people in transition

Throughout all of our services we focus on personalised support, tailoring services to the needs and aspirations of each individual; supporting them to lead the lives they want as active citizens in their communities.

Alternative Futures Group are now looking to appoint up to five new Trustees to help drive our organisation forward whilst maintaining our strong reputation with regulators and commissioners; our north western identity; our values; and our creativity and willingness to innovate.

While the new Trustees do not necessarily need to have held previous non-executive roles, they will be able to demonstrate a track record of success in wide reaching, senior leadership positions, and be willing and able to contribute to the full agenda at Alternative Futures Group. In addition, we are looking for Trustees with experience and expertise at a strategic level in one or more of the following areas:

  • Social housing, with a focus on commercial development
  • Clinical mental health services
  • Social care services
  • Finance, with a focus on strategic organisational development
  • Advocacy for people with learning disabilities, such as a senior member of a service user group or a recognised public advocate / campaigner

A strong profile in, connections to and networks in the north west would be advantageous, as would be connections to national policy making.

Closing date for applications: 9am, Monday 23rd September
