Trustee - Social Housing Specialist
Welcome from the Chair
Thank you for your interest in joining the board of Stonewall Housing as one of our new Trustees.
This is an exciting time for Stonewall Housing, we have developed an ambitious strategy which is focused on growth, influence and excellence and we are hoping you will be able to help us achieve our strategic aims.
We know that tens of thousands of LGBTQ+ people across the United Kingdom would benefit from our support and with your help we want to ensure that we can reach as many of them as possible.
We firmly believe that Board should be made up of people who come from diverse backgrounds, with diverse experiences and with 13% of our service users Trans, 8% Non-binary and 57% People of colour we are particularly aware that we require more representation from these groups and those with lived experience of homelessness.
Being on the Board at Stonewall Housing is fun but we want to be clear upfront that it does involve work and dedicated commitment. Most of the current Board members work full time and some have additional caring responsibilities. Board meetings are held on a weekday evening with occasional attendance at other events such as fundraisers and strategy awaydays with plenty of advance notice.
If you have not been a trustee before, please do not be put off applying. We want to hear from people who are passionate about LGBTQ+ people, passionate about making sure people have somewhere safe to call home and passionate about helping organisations succeed. We will make sure you have a really good induction, have access to ongoing training opportunities and will buddy you up with an existing Trustee to help you get settled into your new role.
You will find lots more information about our mission and services in this recruitment pack. We have aimed to make the application process as simple as possible, however if you require further assistance, including reasonable adjustments that might be useful, please let us know by contacting our CEO.
I will look forward to reading your application.
