Now we are a highly successful organisation that delivers a wide range of projects, diversifying and developing over the years in response to the changing needs of people with a learning disability as well as the requirements of local and national government and legislation. We work primarily across Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes.
Talkback has adapted and survived through difficult financial times and through the recent pandemic, ensuring that the people we work with continue to be supported using new and innovative ways to offer services.
We are now looking for new trustees to join our Board to help us continue our journey. We are particularly looking for people with skills in marketing, service commissioning, finance or fundraising. We are also keen to hear from individuals with experience of working with and supporting people with autism or a learning disability.
Board meetings are held 4 times per year with an additional session to review our strategy. Most meetings are by video conference, but we aim to meet in person at least once a year. Most Board members will also be members of one of our sub-committees and all Board members are invited to attend activities like our drama productions or sports sessions. You will be offered a full Induction into the organisation and appropriate training.
