Signpost supports families with disabled children, by providing both a listening ear and practical help. This support is vital for families facing the challenges of their child’s disability, and can make the difference between families having the same choices and chances as anyone else, and missing out on the ‘ordinary life’ that every family should enjoy.
We are looking for up to 3 new trustees to join our Management Committee and take a lead role in helping the organisation to take forward its strategic plan.
We welcome enquiries from all interested parties, particularly if you have a business background, or if you have experience of using local services for young people with additional needs, but your commitment, enthusiasm, communication skills, ability to work as a member of a team and openness to learning are the most desirable skills. To arrange an informal chat, or a visit to Signpost to find out more, please register your interest.
All trustees are jointly responsible for overseeing the work of the organisation, through monthly meetings and an annual development day at which staff and committee members decide the future direction of the charity’s work.
This provides an excellent opportunity for continuing professional and personal development, as induction and training are provided to trustees. Parent carers seeking to develop new skills, and those from the business community seeking a way to make a meaningful contribution to their local community are especially welcome.
