WE ARE LOOKING FOR NEW TRUSTEES!
The Howlands (Dewsbury District League of Friendship), is a charity that supports vulnerable adults with physical, learning and sensory disabilities and those with mental health issues, often worsened by loneliness and isolation. With the help of volunteers and carers, our staff provide daily sessions based around socialising, art, craft and other activities in a friendly, comfortable environment. Membership can be accessed by anyone provided that their needs can be supported. We currently have around 70 members, many of whom are lonely and isolated. Our members are often elderly and vulnerable, many have physical disabilities, dementia and other health challenges.
We are particularly interested in those looking for a new challenge with the following experience or skills:
- People with digital and marketing experience to help us make the most of technology where we can.
- People with local knowledge and connections in the Dewsbury and Kirklees area.
- People with experience of engaging in art, particularly in a community setting
- Legal experience
No previous Board experience is necessary. We are interested in hearing from people with a range of skills, not just those highlighted above. We are open to different ideas and fresh perspectives.
Board meetings generally last for around one hour quarterly, and you will be invited to attend additional events and sessions. For the foreseeable future all meetings are held via Zoom.
Are you interested?
To register your interest about joining the board, please contact Cath Longley, Chair of Trustees, tel: 07974703182, email: firstname.lastname@example.org for an informal chat. You will be invited as a visitor trustee to one of our meetings, to ensure that it’s the right role for you.
