What will you be doing?

At Parkside we are keen that our voluntary board of Trustees bring with them a variety of skills and expertise that will enable Parkside to develop in a professional and sustainable way, ensuring all stakeholders are offered, where possible, the services and opportunities they require. We need support in financial matters and how best to strategically look at our finances in the coming years. We have a diverse board of professional trustees who are keen to make sure the charity remains financially sound. The board meetings annual audits and quality control audits all form part of the need to make sure the charity meets its objectives.

What are we looking for?

You might be a parent of someone with a learning disability and autism whereby your experaince is greatly valued on the board. Or a Business and or Care background would be an advantage but primarily understanding and empathy of and with the situation of the vulnerable people we support. We want all our Trustees to feel part of our organisation and through this we know they will genuinely gain fulfillment. We have a great group of people we support and as a Trustee you will soon really care about them.  We know we have all the compassion and support for our Service Users but we also need all the other skills to make us even better!  Becoming a trustee does require a commitment of time and energy, but it is rewarding to be able to apply your skills and knowledge to the development of services, for Parkside's many vulnerable clients.

What difference will you make?

We are a small charity turnover under 1 million but we have a wide range of services that offer some 150 people with a learning disability and autism a range of activities and support. Having a small team we do need support in areas where we do not employ fully qualified personnel.  We need to make sure how to manage staff expectations and more professional help would be a real addition to our current board. We are always striving to be better for all our members. Support in the care sector and quality are skills welcome.
