Trustees Wanted!

We are Heart of England Mencap, an established charity covering South Warwickshire and Worcestershire, supporting adults with a learning disability to live their best life.   Through the provision of Supported Living, Respite and Day Services we strive to be the best in our field.

We're looking for people who can demonstrate they have the dedication and innovation to make a positive impact on the lives of people with a learning disability.   People to champion disabled people’s rights and their meaningful inclusion in community life.

We want people with passion, people who want to speak up for those without a voice – people with real life skills and experience of living with a disability or caring for someone vulnerable.    

People who can relate to those we support and share our charity’s key values: 

Honest – Effective – Aspirational – Respectful - Trustworthy

Our priority is to have an inclusive Board of Trustees, consisting of a range of experiences and perspectives. We encourage applicants from all backgrounds to apply especially people who have skills or life experience in any of the following areas:

  • Mental Health
  • Disability
  • Marginalised groups
  • Social Housing
  • NHS

We also welcome applications from young people looking for their first role as a trustee and offer the opportunity to develop in a role where you really can make a difference.

As a member of the Board of Trustees you will play an important part in an enthusiastic and energised team. Your contribution will help to shape the organisation for the future, working effectively with the Executive team to ensure our business plans are delivered in line with the strategic objectives.

We don’t use words like ‘inclusivity’ just to make our advert look good. We will ensure our recruitment process also supports this and reflects our values, we will demonstrate this through the way we work and the way we welcome you to our team. 

As a Trustee we would be looking for a commitment of approximately 15 hours per month.   This is a voluntary, unpaid position, however, mileage and agreed expenses would be payable.   The reward is knowing you are making a real difference to the lives of vulnerable people!
