The Group works across many parts of England providing care and support to nearly 20,000 people with mental health and substance misuse challenges.

We are looking for an outstanding and influential board member who can bring significant experience of strategic marketing, media or cutting edge commissioning skills and/or experience in provision of digital and tech based services ideally with a commercial or entrepreneurial background.
