We’re looking for senior-level people to join our Board of Trustees, particularly those with experience of the health sector.
As Lincolnshire’s population ages, never have our services, which focus on accident and illness prevention, early intervention and reablement, been more needed even as public funding diminishes.
It’s an exciting time to join us as we implement an ambitious programme of change, including the launch of LHIA Adaptations Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lincolnshire Home Independence Agency. The new company provides an in-house resource for the installation of specially-adapted bathrooms for people with mobility issues.
We are looking for individuals 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.
To apply for the role of Trustee, please email Emily Neal, Trustee, firstname.lastname@example.org with a CV and explanation of the value that you could bring to the Board.
