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.
As a UK charity, Contact is committed to having four nations representation at Board level and now have a vacancy for a Trustee from Scotland.
Charity People is proud and privileged to be supporting Contact to find this brilliant new trustee to represent Scotland 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.
The Board already has a diverse mix of backgrounds and experience. However, they are keen to strengthen the diversity of the Board to better reflect the experiences 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.
To support this important work, we'd love to speak to candidates with specialist skills in any of the following sectors:
* Fundraising, individual giving or philanthropy
* Digital, communications and marketing
* Service delivery
We would be particularly keen to speak to parent carers and candidates from Black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds. It's absolutely crucial to the charity's sustainability and authenticity that the Board fully represents the people and communities it serves.
This is a fantastic charity, with people who care deeply about what they do. If you believe you can contribute through your experience and skills, then please get in touch for an informal conversation.
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 Directors, Amelia Lee and Ellen Drummond, are leading on this opportunity.
Closing at 9am on Monday 22nd February, but please do get in touch as soon as possible if you're interested.
Charity People actively promotes equality, diversity and inclusion. We match charity needs with skills and experience of candidates, irrespective of age, disability (including hidden disabilities), gender, gender identity or gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation. We do this because we know greater diversity will lead to even greater results for the charities we work with.
