Job description

Join us as a Dog A.I.D. Trustee and you would be joining the Board at an exciting time as we have launched the charity’s Strategic Plan with a new CEO supported by a small but strong team, which we will be building further this year. As a Dog A.I.D. Trustee you would be using your skills and experience to support our charity in achieving its ambitious strategic growth targets over the coming years and guiding its transition to becoming a larger, more robust charity with increased profile and reach.

Dog A.I.D. empowers physically disabled people by coaching them to train their own pet dog to become an accredited Assistance Dog. By focusing on the existing pet/owner bond, outcomes for our clients include:

 ·       increased independence and self-confidence

·       improved mental well-being

·       reduction in social isolation

·       reduced reliance on family members and/or carers.

·       increased opportunities, with many of our clients being able to return to work or education, supported by their accredited Assistance Dog.

We are looking for Trustees who can contribute 2-5 hours per month, including attendance at online quarterly Board meetings and other ad-hoc meetings and strategic discussions. We are also hoping to have occasional in-person meetings and Away Days to build the trustee team. We are looking in particular to recruit trustees with one or more of the following skills and experience:

- lived experience of physical disability

- legal

- marketing/communications/PR

- volunteer management

- safeguarding

- disability and access rights
