Lewisham, South-East London.
Board positions are voluntary and unpaid. Reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.

Based in Lewisham, PLUS is a charity that provides care and support services for adults with learning disabilities in South London. Our family focus is at the heart of our work, and at a time of significant change with our founding Chair stepping down after 30 years of service, we are looking for someone who can bring that same caring and inclusive approach as we look to the future.


We are now seeking a new Chair to lead our organisation and guide the Board of committed Trustees and our Executive Team to strengthen our effort and refresh the strategy and operational framework. We recently reviewed our strategy and have identified exciting opportunities for our future growth and development. As our new Chair, you will be integral in helping us formalise some of these opportunities, explore new options and support our executive to realise our potential. 

You do not need to have been a Chair before, but you will be an experienced strategic leader who has expertise working in regulated environments and who understands local authority commissioning. Relationships are central to PLUS’s work and our new Chair, along with the Chief Executive, will continue to grow our commissioners’ confidence in our services and team. Excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to build relationships internally and with external stakeholders, which are core to our operations, are essential.

Our people are at the heart of everything we do, and you will be a “people first” leader, deeply committed to our purpose and focused on delivering the best outcomes for those we serve. 

If this opportunity inspires you to lead our dedicated and committed team to make a difference to people in South-East London we’d love to hear from you.
