We are looking for new trustees to join our board
Foundations has been the government appointed national body for Home Improvement Agency (HIA) services since 2000. Foundations set up the charity Foundations Independent Living Trust (FILT), a growing and innovative national charity that raises funds to help older adults and disabled people be warm, safe and well in their own homes. As a forward thinking charity, we are looking for new trustees with the passion and desire to support the development of the charity’s work and increase our income and reach.
We are aiming to broaden our networks and experience of the board as we continue to develop our links and strengthen our finance expertise. We also wish to reflect the diversity of our service users in our board. If you have skills and experience in fundraising and business development with a strategic overview of housing and social care, we would like to hear from you!
As a board member you will be expected to attending quarterly board and finance meetings which are generally hosted in London and attend other events as relevant; provide a strategic lead to develop the charity and its work; identify new funding opportunities for the charity; advise and support the charity’s secretariat. In return we offer out of pocket expenses and the opportunity to develop your skills and experience with an active board.
To apply, please send a CV with covering letter setting out why you want to be a trustee of Foundations Independent Living Trust and what you could bring to the role to help develop and grow the charity, to applications@FILT.org.uk.
The closing date is 28th February 2017.
For an informal discussion, please contact our charity Chair, Sara McKee, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
