YMCA Bedfordshire is a dynamic, forward thinking Charity/Housing Association, and a Limited Company by Guarantee. Supporting over 895 individuals accessing our services each year across the County of Bedfordshire, we also deliver a service in Hertfordshire. Through focused support and development initiatives we enable homeless people of all ages to integrate into society, helping them gain self-worth, education, employment and training, and move along the path from benefits to interdependent living.
As a Trustee you will play a vital role in overseeing the governance of the charity. You will be working alongside a small but dedicated Board of Trustees with a diverse pool of skills and experience. You must be a good role model and be able to have the confident respect and support of the Chief Executive and the Charities staff team.
The Board meets approximately four times a year, alongside sub-groups comprising Strategy & Planning, Finance & HR. The meetings are generally during the evenings but occasional weekend meetings may be required.
This is a highly rewarding and varied role, and we particularly encourage applicants with expertise in social housing, marketing, finance and strategy.
