- Do you want to use your skills to support an incredibly diverse charity as a Trustee?
- Are you a qualified accountant, or working or have worked at a senior level in Adult Care in a Local Authority or Adult Care charity (Dementia/disability)?
- Are you driven to create a more just, more diverse, more inclusive society?
If so, you might be interested in becoming a Trustee for Father Hudson’s Care.
The charity works with and support individuals, families, and communities; those who are homeless; those who experience the impact of complex disability in their lives; refugees and asylum seekers; the elderly who live with dementia, frail health, or isolation; children and young people for whom foster care or family support will help them achieve their potential, be safe and secure; and adults who have been in care in childhood or adopted.
As a Charity with such diversity in those who use their services, Father Hudson’s want to ensure that that diversity exists in their Trustee Board, including those who have lived experience of using services. As such, they are determined to recruit new Board members, so that diversity is embedded in its value base as well as services.
They have a Board of highly committed individuals who believe in the Charity’s vision and mission. Please consider adding your particular gifts and experience to the Board. One of the best ways to help a Charity is to provide good and wise governance.
The Charity is used by those of many faiths and none, based only on need. It is important that any Trustee shares the Charity’s ethos, mission, vision, and value base.
About the role
- New members for the Finance, Land and Support services subcommittee, particularly someone from an Accountancy background.
- New members for the Adult Care subcommittee. They are particularly looking for someone that has worked in a large (possibly national) Adult Care Charity or at a senior level in Local Authority/Health Adult Care commissioning or direct services.
You would be committing to four Board meetings a year (4.30p.m. on a weekday evening), and four sub-committee meetings that take place three to four weeks before the main Board meeting, usually at 2.00 on a weekday. A full induction will be provided.
