Impact Initiatives has built a reputation for innovation, developing and delivering services inline with the needs of those who use them for over 40 years. We work across Sussex with people of all ages. Our model of a Central Team providing IT, finance, facilities, HR and business development support ensures each specialist manager can focus on their service delivery and development and brings value for money for funders through the maximum possible going into direct service delivery

We are seeking to strengthen our Board of Trustees by recruiting three more people to join our longer standing, friendly team, this will widen the range of experience and understanding of our service users and so bring a wider range of views.

Our Trustees meet four times each year with additional meetings as and when needed. Finance, business development and service delivery reports are circulated before meetings so any queries can be answered prior to the meeting where they are discussed.

Skills

The most important qualities needed in a trustee are a commitment to the aims and values of the organisation, and an understanding of some of the issues our service users face.

Trustees must be aged 18+ and be willing to discuss ideas and options to help make decisions in the best interests of the charity and its service users.

Experience of attending and contributing to meetings is helpful and we would particularly welcome people with legal, financial or IT expertise.
