The local mental health charity Havering Mind currently works across Havering and Barking & Dagenham, and is looking to recruit a number of people to join its Board of Trustees, and provide positive leadership and direction. As a Trustee, you will be part of a team responsible for the strategic and financial management of the charity, ensuring that our core purpose is carried out and helping to promote our positive vision: –
“We will not give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem both support and respect.”
We welcome applications from people of all ages and backgrounds from across both Boroughs and beyond. We want to broaden the diversity of our Board to create a group that truly represents the communities that we serve.
We are particularly interested in applications from individuals who have skills and expertise in one of the following areas: Legal, Human Resources, Finance, Marketing, Equality and Diversity, IT, digital, branding and social media, Safeguarding, Clinical / public sector commissioning and Project management.
You should be willing to participate in Board meetings every two months and join one of our four, active sub-committees. This is a voluntary role – reasonable out of pocket expenses may be claimed. Previous Board/ and or Trustee experience is not essential.
CEO Sarah Balser said ‘The unprecedented year we’ve all been through, has increased awareness around mental health and the needs across Havering, Barking and Dagenham. Becoming a Trustee of Mind in Havering, Barking & Dagenham is a great opportunity for individuals to help shape the future and make a real difference.’
