We are looking for Trustees who are the type of people who get things done and are not afraid of innovation and change to help guide us through the next stage of development in alleviating loneliness in local care homes.

 

What will you be doing?

As a trustee you will have an essential role in contributing towards the direction of our charity, helping to provide continuity in the governance of the charity and guiding our future work. We have an opportunity to build on the creative and innovative work which took place as a result of the pandemic and we want to build and expand on our range of services. We aim to become more integrated in our local community and form relationships and partnerships with other groups, through networking and joint working,

You will be required to attend a minimum of six meetings per year and the Annual General Meeting, You may be asked to take on responsibility for a particular aspect of the the governance of the charity, whether on an ongoing or time limited basis, depending on your knowledge and skills and availability.

 

What are we looking for?

We are looking for people who can take an objective view of the charity with clear vision and clarity of thought, A knowledge or background in the voluntary sector would be very useful, but not essential. We are looking particularly to address the  gaps we have in our current Trustee Board, which include legal and HR. However, our greatest need is for people who can work as part of a team and like to get things done.

 

What difference will you make?

FFL is a small charity with lots of scope for growth. The current Trustee Board consists of 6 members, some of whom have been Trustees for many years. The Board needs to expand both in numbers and in skills and new ideas. The charity must move onto a new footing with better systems and evaluation of its services to enable it to grow. FFL is only one of two organisations nationally who specialise in befriending in care homes. However this is an area of need, which has sadly been highlighted during the pandemic, which is often forgotten. We would like to not only be able to offer inclusive and stimulating interaction within our current area of operation, but in time to expand this valuable service to other regional areas.
