Viewpoint is a charity whose purpose is to use the views and expertise of people who use mental health and drug and alcohol services in Hertfordshire to bring about change for the better. We also deliver user led training and mental health promotion.
By becoming a Trustee, you will be helping to make a difference to people’s lives and their experiences of the services that are set up to support them. You will be a pioneer in promoting user led services for the future.
Charity Trustees are unpaid volunteers. However, out of pocket expenses are paid for travel. Trustees have and must accept ultimate responsibility for directing the affairs of a charity, and ensuring that it is solvent, well-run, and delivering the charitable outcomes for the benefit of the public for which it has been set up.
The committee meets every 6 weeks and our Trustees also try to volunteer their time to help with projects whenever they can.
In particular we would like to recruit Trustees who have the following expertise:
- Fundraising capabilities
- Financial experience
- Personnel / HR experience
- Marketing experience
- Legal knowledge
- Strategic planning capacity
- Knowledge of mental health and / or drug and alcohol services
You can be co-opted onto the board if you miss the AGM, and if there are still vacancies for Trustees with certain expertise.
Please speak to Leslie Billy (CEO) on 01707 383641 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
We hope you will join us!
