Children Deadline 10/08/2021
I CAN is the leading children's communication charity in the United Kingdom, originally formed in 1888. Their purpose - to make sure that no child is left behind due to struggling to communicate - has never been more relevant. Post-covid, 1.5 million children are at risk of being left behind with their speaking and understanding with devastating consequences for their education, mental health, and future employment.
They are looking for a new trustee with experience at a senior level in the legal profession or as a General Counsel or equivalent. The person should have an understanding of governance, employment, property, and commercial law. Familiarity with charity law would also be an advantage.
Meetings take place quarterly in London (or remotely via video).

The Mortimer Society
Disability Health Deadline 30/09/2021
The Mortimer Society are specialists in the provision of residential care for those living with long term neurological conditions, such as Huntington's Disease. Their work makes an important difference to the lives of profoundly disabled adults with degenerative neurological conditions and their purpose is to enhance the quality of life for each person that they care for by knowing and understanding the things that make them happy and fulfilled.
They are now looking for new trustees with an interest in and enthusiasm for the residential care of people with disabilities. They would particularly benefit from someone who could bring expertise in general legal matters (they would source specialist advice for specific issues), as well as knowledge of marketing or fundraising and experience of nursing or work in the medical field. Trustees should be committed to The Mortimer Society and demonstrate a passion for improving the care of their residents. They should have a dedication to inclusive working, valuing difference and respecting all people. Trustees should also have strategic vision, a pro-active attitude and be honest, reliable and have integrity. An ability to challenge and debate with respect and accept constructive discussion are also important.
Meetings take place quarterly in Snodland/Wainscott (and occasionally online), usually in the mornings.
