Register your Interest

Do you have an understanding of the military and a background in the charity sector? Would you like to contribute strategically to a charity supporting ex-service people and their families? Do you have 4 to 6 hours a month to offer? 

Care for Veterans is a Worthing based charity. Working in the gaps between healthcare and social services, we offer a range of appropriate solutions for people with physical disabilities and complex needs, many of whom have served this country.

The Board of Trustees are jointly responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of the charity, its financial health and developing its aims and objectives in line with the governing document, legal and regulatory guidelines. 

We are now seeking a new Trustee to join this Board following the retirement of one of our Trustees. The appointment will be for four years from March 2021 with a standard extension of a further four years subject to reappointment. 

As well as attending board meetings, you will provide the Board with advice on military and charity issues. And you will be expected to serve on one or more committees, including the fundraising and marketing committee. The committees provide specialist strategic advice to the Board of Trustees as well as monitoring the overall performance of the Charity.
