Person description

It would be great to welcome someone with senior experience in the Charity world and with governance and compliance experience. We are a well-regarded charity and work hard to improve the situation for many of our clients who are disadvantaged by health inequalities. We have proved our resilience as a charity during Covid-19 and looking forward we want to strengthen an already excellent Board of Trustees to help front-line staff continue their good work.
