Lincolnshire Home Independence Agency (LHIA) employs 27 people, turns over around £950k per annum and administers around £4m. We helped over 3,000 customers last year 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, and lead partner for LILP in the delivery of the Wellbeing Service on behalf of Lincolnshire County Council. Having won the Wellbeing Service contract in 2014, we are growing fast, expanding our reach and impact, and looking optimistically to the future despite the uncertainties of funding and the commissioning landscape.
We seek new Non-Executive Directors / 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 Director / 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.
To apply, please email Simon Lamb, Non-Executive Director & 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.
