Do you share our passion for empowering disabled children and young people to play, learn and grow confidently into adulthood? Do you want to help us give more families the practical and emotional support they need to support a disabled child?

What are we looking for?

We are looking for four new trustees to bring governance of the highest quality to secure our services and shape our next chapter. We’re especially (though not exclusively) interested in attracting people with the following skills: financial management; safeguarding and risk; strategic planning; business development; disability and special educational needs; and health. 

One trustee will become Treasurer, when the incumbent steps down next year. We are particularly interested in hearing from disabled people, who are currently underrepresented at Board level, as well as from candidates with relevant experience as parents, carers or siblings; and from young people and black or ethnic minority applicants.

What’s involved?

The Board together with the CEO and senior executives currently meets 6 times a year in central London, normally for about three hours, with an additional annual meeting to review and consider direction and strategy. The Finance & Audit Committee meets 5 times a year. Trustees are expected to actively contribute between meetings.

Trustees receive a full induction and are reimbursed for reasonable travel expenses.
