BLG Mind is a highly respected provider of support for people living with mental health problems and dementia in South-East London. With a history going back to 1953, the charity now covers three London Boroughs with a diverse population of over 900,000 people. We are an independent local charity, and one of the largest organisations in the Mind network.
This is an exciting time to join BLG Mind as our new Chair following a period of significant growth and change. As we continue to embed new and innovative services and newly forged partnerships, our focus continues to be on providing excellent quality whilst being responsive to new opportunities and changing needs.
As we embark upon the development of our new strategy, growth will continue to be on our agenda, and in our new Chair we are therefore seeking a leader who has led an organisation through growth or change. We are open to where your professional skills and experience lie but you will bring Board experience and must share our values which are lived and breathed by the whole organisation. We are particularly proud of the award-winning work we have done over recent years to improve the diversity and inclusivity of the organisation, although we recognise that there is still more to do, and welcome applications from culturally diverse and underserved communities.
As our Chair, you will be joining an ambitious Board to help shape our vision and the way we work, in collaboration with a skilled and experienced Senior Leadership Team. We want to harness your experience and skills as we drive forward on our mission together.
If you are excited by our vision and commitment to improving the mental health of everyone in our three Boroughs, and believe you bring the skills and experience we
need, we would love to hear from you.
