In 2016-17, Lincolnshire Home Independence Agency (LHIA) turned over around £950k and helped over 3,000 customers to live independently in their own homes via property repairs, improvements and adaptations and caseworker support. Our services help to prevent accidents (for example, falls linked to reduced mobility) and illness (for example, medical conditions linked to cold and damp homes), and thus help to keep people out of hospital.
We are a founding member of Lincs Independent Living Partnership (LILP), a consortium of five local charitable organisations bound by a common mission to promote independent living.
LHIA – Board Vacancies
We seek new Trustees who, working alongside fellow Board members, can support the Senior Management Team in implementing an ambitious programme of change, whilst ensuring high standards of governance. We are looking for people who can bring enthusiasm, commitment and expertise, together with a wider range of perspectives and experiences, reflecting the diverse and rural communities within our county.
In terms of time commitment, you would be asked to attend a bi-monthly Board meeting (lasting 2-3 hours), an occasional, short Sub Group meeting between Board Meetings and, very occasionally, events at which you would represent LHIA. Additionally, you would spend a certain amount of time reading background information and documents in preparation for meetings.
Trustees are appointed in their own right, but may also bring particular expertise to the Board. The position of a Trustee is honorary and is unpaid.
As required by the Charities Commission, before Trustees can be appointed we need to undertake certain checks, these include: an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check, the Individual Insolvency Register, the Register of Disqualified Directors, and the Register of Removed Charity Trustees.
LHIA Adaptations Ltd – Board Vacancy
LHIA Adaptations Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lincolnshire Home Independence Agency, is a new, in-house resource for the installation of specially-adapted bathrooms for people with mobility issues. We’re seeking a senior-level person with a background in the construction industry to join the Board as a Non-Executive Director. Please note that as LHIA Adaptations Ltd is the trading arm of LHIA, a charity, the role is unpaid.
To apply for a role with either organisation, please email Emily Neal, Trustee, firstname.lastname@example.org , with a CV and explanation of the value that you could bring to the Board.
LHIA, and our partners in Lincs Independent Living Partnership (LILP), employ full and part-time staff on fixed event and open-ended contracts, with a mixture of office and home-based working.
Most posts are subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check. All LILP partners are equal opportunities employers and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
