Trustee

Job Reference: Trustee | Closing Date: 7th Aug 2020

Who we are:
Since 1995, Equal Lives has been a user-led disability rights organisation. We have supported thousands of people to assert their rights and become more independent. We firmly believe in the ‘nothing about us, without us’ approach and are actively searching for potential Trustees that embrace this ethos.

Could this be you?

Our mission is to remove disabling barriers so that people have equality, dignity and independence. We also work collaboratively with our members, member groups and organisational bodies to ensure the voices of people with disabilities are included in consultations to challenge issues that divide and discriminate. We work closely with our varied membership to steer the projects and campaigns that the organisation undertakes.

We are looking for trustees who can share our passion to free the world of disabling barriers and are positive advocates in promoting the social model of disability. This may be through:
• Personal experience of disability
• Work experience of disability issues
• Or by supporting others

We are looking for applicants from all backgrounds who can bring:
• Good leadership skills
• Business and finance skills
• Contribute to decisions and support the actions required for the future development of Equal Lives.
• Ability to work well individually on projects, then able to come together as a team.
The Board of trustees meet quarterly for full meeting, normally outside of weekly working business hours, currently via teams. They may also be expected to occasionally work in sub-committees or attend external meetings. Accumulated time needed during a year would be 2-3 hours work per month.
A trustee’s term of office normally lasts for 3 years.
Trustees can claim out of pocket expenses. Training and support will be offered on an ongoing basis to keep you up to date in this important role.

The role will be 14.8 hours per week, and you will be working from home.
Based in the Business Development Team, your role will be engaging with disabled people across Norfolk who have been affected by COVID19.
This could be that they have been directly affected by contracting the virus, or that they have experienced additional barriers due to COVID19 that have made it more difficult for them to live independently (e.g ability to get food and medication etc).
