Support charity in Sussex ‘Impact Initiatives’ seeks new Trustee
Trustees hold legal responsibility for the organisations overall direction and decision making. They meet quarterly and delegate the day to day management to the CEO and Senior Management Team who provide reports for each meeting.
Impact Initiatives has built a reputation for innovation, developing and delivering services inline with the needs of those who use them for over 40 years. We work across Sussex with people of all ages. Our model of a Central Team providing IT, finance, facilities, HR and business development support ensures each specialist manager can focus on their service delivery and development and ensures value for money for funders through the maximum possible going into direct service delivery.
Our services include supported housing for young women, mental health support for 13 – 19 year old’s, Advocacy and employment support for adults with disabilities and services and support for older people.
We are seeking to strengthen our Board of Trustees by recruiting three more people to join our longer standing, friendly team. We will be stronger if trustees bring a range of experience and understanding of our service users and represent a range of views.
Our Trustees meet four times each year with additional meetings as and when needed. Finance, business development and service delivery reports are circulated before meetings so any queries can be answered prior to the meeting where they are discussed. Trustees check and support the CEO and Senior Management Team to deliver the agreed business plan.
The most important qualities needed in a trustee are a commitment to, and a passion for the values of the organisation and an understanding of some of the issues our service users face.
Trustees must be aged 18+ and be willing to discuss ideas and options to help make decisions in the best interests of the charity and its service users.
Experience of attending and contributing to meetings is helpful and we would particularly welcome people with legal, financial or IT expertise.
We will be stronger if trustees bring a range of experience and understanding of our service users and represent a range of views.
