As the strategic management body of the Elfrida Society, Trustees have specific responsibilities. These include responsibility for directing the affairs of the Elfrida Society, ensuring it keeps good finances and is well run, and that it acts within its aims. Trustees are responsible with looking after the resources of the Elfrida Society ensuring that these are used effectively for the overall purpose of the organisation.
Trustees are accountable for their decisions and actions to the Elfrida Society’s governance structures, the public, Courts, funders and the people who use our services. As a Trustee you will bring your knowledge, experience and skills to help us to make an even greater difference to the lives of the people with learning disabilities we support. You will be committed to delivering meaningful outcomes for our beneficiaries and to reaching ever greater numbers of people with learning disabilities through our services development.
The Chair is supported by a highly effective, diverse and active Board with a wide mix of skill, including two Trustees with learning disabilities who use their knowledge and lived experiences to represent the voices of the learning disabilities community.
The successful candidates will understand the charity landscape and be comfortable with the governance requirements that it carries, will have some board level experience, a sound understanding of finances, be commercially savvy and ideally have experience of working with people with learning disabilities (this is desirable but not essential).
