Chair of Trustees

We are seeking a Chair of Trustees to replace the present Chair who is stepping down after 4 years. With Covid 19 all charities are facing challenges at the moment, but the Centre has risen to the challenges and has a great deal to offer for the future. The Trustees are keen to find the right person for the next phase of the Charity’s development and someone who will share our vision and values. The Chair will normally serve an initial term of three years and may at the discretion of the Trustees be appointed for a second term not exceeding three years.

The Chair is expected to have regular meetings with the Executive Director, and to respond to issues as they arise. S/he will also represent the Charity at various events and on occasion at meetings with key stakeholders
