Single Homeless Project is a London-wide charity. Our vision is of a society where everyone has a place to call home and the chance to live a fulfilling life.
We help single Londoners by preventing homelessness, providing support and accommodation, promoting wellbeing, enhancing opportunity, and being a voice for change. From supporting people in crisis to helping people take the final steps towards independence and employment, we make a difference to 10,000 lives every year across all 32 boroughs.
With homelessness at its highest level for a decade, our work, with its focus on early intervention, prevention and breaking the cycle of homelessness – has never been more important or needed.
As member of the Board, you will be joining us at an exciting time as we implement our new five -year strategic plan.
We currently have two vacancies on our Board of Trustees, one of which will also have the additional responsibilities of Vice Chair of the Board. We are seeking candidates who will be committed to our work and have the knowledge, skills and expertise to help us successfully achieve our strategic aims.
So, if you are resourceful, supportive and want to join us in achieving our ambitious goals, as well as help us change the lives of the people we support, we want to hear from you.
We will require your time and commitment to 1-2 days per month; this includes attending six Board meetings per year (in the evenings).
At SHP we welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and are committed to having a Board of Trustees that is made up of diverse individuals, skills and experiences.
We want to improve the diversity of our Board of Trustees. Black, Asian, Ethnic Minority and LGBTQIA+ people are currently under-represented on our Board. We therefore, particularly welcome and encourage applications from individuals within these communities. Improving the diversity of our Board of Trustees is an important priority for SHP and we very much hope that this recruitment will achieve this aim.
