Job description

We are looking for a new Trustee to join our welcoming and dynamic team at an exciting time and to make a meaningful difference through our work supporting disabled people to live with greater independence.

Designability is a national charity who for over 50 years have created equality of opportunity for disabled people, by removing barriers to independence, enabling them to live the life they choose.

Following a person-centred design approach, and by including disabled people at each point of the design process, we ensure their ideas and lived experiences are taken onboard and that what we create reflects people’s needs as well as products and services they want to use. We are best known for the iconic Wizzybug powered wheelchairs for very young disabled children. To date, they have been loaned to over 1,400 children, typically aged between 14 months and 5 years, across the UK completed free of charge thanks to the support of our generous donors. 

Designability has a strong leadership team and we appointed a new Chief Executive at the beginning of 2024 who has over 20 years of experience as a founder, leader and consultant in a wide range of start-ups, commercial, public sector and not-for-profit environments. As we come the end of the first year of an ambitious three-year strategy, we are in a strong financial position with healthy reserves, and celebrated the end of 2023 with a highly successful televised BBC Lifeline Appeal demonstrating the impact of our work to a new and wider audience.

Having reviewed the skills, experience and diversity of current trustees, we would welcome candidates with experience in the following area:

Clinical expertise with experience of working with disabled people. This could include experience gained through a senior position in occupational therapy, physiotherapy or rehabilitation engineering or rehabilitation medicine.

Working as a team, trustees have three main responsibilities:

· To set a clear direction for Designability.

· To make sure that the charity’s plans are being carried out appropriately.

· To ensure that the charity meets its legal responsibilities .

All new trustees take part in an induction programme with the Chief Executive and Directors of each department and are offered ongoing training and support.


You will be joining an independent, national charity based in Bath. Our creative and inspiring team includes engineers, technicians, product designers, occupational therapists, fundraisers and administrators. We are led by strong values: we are creative, inclusive and practical, with our vision being to create a future where every disabled person has the products they want to live the life they choose.

For an informal conversation about this role, please contact us through Charity Job. 

To apply: Please submit a CV and covering letter/statement detailing why you wish to apply and how your skills and experience meet the criteria for the role.

Closing Date for applications:  31/07/24

Interview date:  Successful applicants will be offered a mutually convenient interview date, following the closing date.
