Contact is the charity for families with disabled children. They understand that life with a disabled child brings unique challenges, and they exist to help families feel valued, supported, confident and informed.
Charity People is both proud and privileged to be supporting Contact to find a brilliant new trustee to represent Wales at Board level, playing a crucial role in setting the future direction of the charity. With a clear strategy in place, a solid financial base and a well-led and recently refreshed senior management team, the Board is supportive, challenging and passionate about Contact's work.
As a UK charity, Contact is committed to having four nations representation at Board level and now have a vacancy for a Trustee from Wales. The Board has a diverse mix of backgrounds and experience, including parent carers. However, they are keen to strengthen the diversity of the Board to better reflect the ethnicity of the families they serve, cultivating a culture that values all individuals and their wide array of contributions.
Contact is proud to have been able to reach out and extend support for families during the pandemic so far. They are also in the first year of their ambitious new strategy 'Transforming Lives Together' with the aim of reaching more families earlier in their journey. The strategy focuses on how to make the best use of digital tools and co-production to make services as responsive and accessible as possible.
For this reason, we'd be keen to speak to digital specialists who could offer expert advice and guidance at Board level around digital strategy and transformation. We would also be interested to hear from candidates in the HR/People or legal spaces.
We encourage and welcome conversations with candidates from diverse ethnic backgrounds for this opportunity. You'll have an understanding of the needs of families with disabled children in Wales and a commitment to improving outcomes for them, although lived experience isn't essential.
You don't need to be a Welsh speaker to apply for this role, although ideally you will live or have lived in Wales.
This is a fantastic charity, with people who care deeply about what they do. If you believe you have the skills and qualities we're looking for, then we would love to hear from you.
A draft CV or profile would be a useful first step; however, please feel free to get in touch for a copy of the job pack and an initial conversation if you prefer. Our Regional Director, Amelia Lee, is leading on this opportunity and you can reach her on 07809738477.
Application deadline: 9am on 28th September
Interiews: 12th and 20th October
