Carers in Hertfordshire seeks new Trustee – legal skills welcomed
Whether you are an experienced trustee or want to take the first steps at Board level we want to hear from you. We are particularly interested in applications from Carers, ethnic minority communities, younger adults and people identifying as LGBTQ+.
Carers in Hertfordshire support all unpaid Carers who live, work or care in the county, regardless of their age, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, impairment, location, or severity or type of need.
Our vision is that of a society that sees, understands and values caring and Carers’; that Cares are well informed, empowered and respected; and have choice and control over all aspects of their caring role.
Carers in Hertfordshire provides advice, information and support to unpaid carers – people looking after someone who is elderly, disabled, has a physical or mental illness or who misuses drugs or alcohol.
Ensuring Hertfordshire’s carers are identified, supported and stay well, is at the heart of our work. We give carers a voice with opportunities to meet other carers. We also enable carers to share their views or experiences with those providing or planning health and social care services in Hertfordshire.
We support carers of all ages – children and adults – if they live, work or care in Hertfordshire. Our services are provided free to carers.
Additionally, we are looking for trustees with skills in one or more of the following areas – legal and/or equality and inclusion.
As a Trustee you will have
- The chance to improve the wellbeing of Carers
- Induction, training & reimbursable expenses
- Opportunities for personal development
- Influence strategic direction and shape certain projects
- Networking opportunities with specialists and supporters
The expected time commitment is six Board meetings a year, attendance at one sub-committee meeting four/five times a year, two director days and ad hoc committee meetings. Most meetings are held during the working day.
