Summary

Looking to become a trustee in Hertfordshire? We are looking for professionals to sit on our board, with an interest in community addiction rehabilitation.

Detailed description

Looking to become a trustee in Hertfordshire? Are you passionate about your community? 

We are looking for professionals to sit on our board, who have an interest in supporting adults through our therapeutic model. We provide an abstinence based group therapy service to support people who have an addiction or their family and carers onto the road of recovery. By joining our board of trustees you will help our 22 year old charity continue to provide an excellent, free service, for people with any addiction to find recovery through our group therapy.

Our trained counsellors live with addiction and are in long term recovery themselves, supported by a committed and talented staff team. Annually we support around 600 Hertfordshire residents and their loved ones to find tools to live without substances or behaviours to break the cycle or addiction.

Our board of trustees is diverse and effective, with good relationships with the Executive Team running the organisation of 44 staff and many volunteers. We are looking for people who would bring their therapeutic or clinical knowledge, in particular, although really happy to welcome new ideas and skills.

We ask that you commit to attend four to six board meetings (either in person in Stevenage or via Zoom), plus one annual strategy day, per year. This is an unpaid role, but reasonable expenses are reimbursed.

Our particular need on our board is for a young person (up to 30 years old) or someone with a clinical background. However, we are interested in speaking with anyone who is interested in joining our welcoming and friendly board.
