Unpaid role, expenses paid
Job description

We are ambitious and we need Trustees who are too. We want you to help us drive change and see an end to homelessness in Milton Keynes.

Now in our 3rd year, the Milton Keynes Homelessness Partnership (MKHP) is seeking new trustees with specialist skills to take us to the next stage of our journey.

We are a network of organisations who connect to prevent and end homelessness in Milton Keynes. We encourage, facilitate, and incubate innovative ideas, promote open exchange of good practice, promote collaboration, are insight led and have a solution-based approach.

Our philosophy starts with a person-centred approach, from medical wellbeing through to better and truly affordable homes. Homelessness is many things. It’s sofa surfing. It’s living in temporary or emergency housing. It’s living in your car. You don’t have to be on the streets to feel unprotected or unwelcome.

We work to elevate the voices of people with lived experience and embed a truly co-production approach to services in Milton Keynes. We encourage diversity of thought and practice and want our Trustee Board to represent Milton Keynes and all its unique facets.

Our Trustee Board is a group of industry leaders who come together 4- 6 times per year and who lend their expertise to the sub-Committees. We have a small expert staff team who need a board who can inform, guide, and support the charity’s development and sustainability as we probe and seek solutions to some challenging and complex issues.

We are seeking up to 6 Trustees, to strengthen the current expertise aswell as bring in new skills to support succession planning as some trustees step down. We are keen to attract trustees with at least two of the following specialist areas of expertise: ✓ Business Development and Income Generation ✓ Corporate and business sector ✓ Financial Management (eg. Accountant or Snr. Financial Director) ✓ Health ✓ Homelessness in its widest sense ✓ Marketing, Communications and Public Relations ✓ Planning, Housing and Property ✓ Public Affairs and Policy ✓ Research and Insight
