We need Trustees!

  • Rathbone DanceHave you thought about getting involved with a local, voluntary sector organisation?
  • Can you spare one evening a month?
  • We are specifically looking for individuals with a background in health & social care and are particularly keen to hear from friends or family of people with learning disabilities or Autism.

We need the diversity of our service user group to be better represented across the charity, and would particularly welcome applications from people from BME backgrounds and/or family and friends of people with learning disabilities.

Charity Trustees are volunteers who are jointly responsible for ensuring the charity is run properly and making decisions about its future direction.

These are exciting times to be involved with the friendly, supportive team at Rathbone. There are many opportunities on the horizon to shape new services with people with learning disabilities and mainstream young people in and around Lambeth.

Becoming a Trustee is a great way to put your professional skills to good use, gain an insight into charity management and develop your strategic planning skills – as well as making a real difference to people with learning disabilities and young people in Lambeth.
