Voluntary basis with expenses reimbursed

For over 38 years, Walsingham Support has been impacting the lives of individuals with learning disabilities, complex needs and autism. We pride ourselves on putting the individuals we support at the centre of everything that we do, enabling us to deliver truly person-centred support solutions that provide independence and happiness.

THE ROLE

We are looking forward to welcoming two new Trustees to our Board. At Walsingham Support we are ambitious for our organisation and the people we serve and are excited about our new Strategy. We are committed to playing our part in developing an equal and diverse society, where individuals with disabilities are active citizens in their own right and supported to live life to the full. 

We have been supporting people with learning disabilities, autism, brain injuries and complex needs across England and Wales since 1986. In that time, we have faced opportunities and challenge and, as we develop our new strategy, we recognise that we need to ensure we have the best skills and expertise on our Board to fulfil our mission and support our Executive team. Therefore, we are looking for two new trustees who can each bring their experience in IT & Systems and Policy & Campaigning to enable us to deliver our planned development and growth. 

As a new trustee, you will / would be joining us at a time when we are focused not only on ensuring a robust and sustainable organisation going forward, but also on how we can stretch our capabilities and extend our reach – both in terms of organisational size and the client groups we serve. Your contribution to the evolution of our new strategy will help us to deliver these ambitions and, at the same time ensure we continue to deliver our outstanding services to the people we support and make Walsingham Support a great place to work. We are also ambitious to be heard – for those we support whose voice is so often ignored: to use our influence and expertise to shape policy and to become a leading voice in the sector. 

You will be joining a team which works collaboratively and is deeply committed to the values of Walsingham Support. We constructively challenge ourselves and one another to ensure we make robust decisions for the benefits of all of those we serve. If you believe you have the experience and qualities to become a Trustee of Walsingham Support, we very much look forward to hearing from you.
