Trustee of the Executive Committee
Over the last twenty years our charity has grown from a project with one single paid worker into an organisation employing 9 staff and with 20+ volunteers. We are also looking to recruit dedicated Trustees from all walks of life and work experiences to become a member of the executive committee to help steer IANE forward. We need people who can help direct IANE towards its mission statement and ensure the organisation is effectively managed. IANE values diversity and welcomes any member of the public who is interested in furthering the aims of IANE to consider joining our board. An interest in IT and social media would be useful but is not necessary. It is important that a Trustee is able to devote the necessary time, have strategic vision, an understanding of advocacy, an ability to think creatively and a willingness to share ideas. Board meetings are usually held early evening, every month at the IANE offices, Linskill Centre, Linskill Terrace, North Shields.
About Independent Advocacy North East
With the support of trained staff, we provide an advocacy and appointee service. This gives a voice to people who need support to make their own choices because they are frail or disabled or because of financial or social circumstances. It also enables them to have their individual needs and views respected and acted upon.
What skills do I need?
We are particularly keen to recruit members of the local community in North Tyneside who have skills and experience in one or more of the following areas: People with real life experiences of physical disability, learning disability, mental health issues, people from Black and Minority Ethnic communities and vulnerable older people; Expertise in marketing, IT and social media are desirable but not essential.
Ramped access to the main entrance via automatic sliding glass doors. 5 accessibility parking spaces.
