As Trustee you will play a key role in enabling the development of the charity's services and hence ensuring the Charity continues to provide specialist activity-based dementia care in both group and one to one settings.
We are looking for a trustee with marketing skills to give a lead on market research and marketing techniques. To remain sustainable, and to develop in due course, we need to have a steady flow of client take up to balance the inevitable losses to be expected with this client group. To achieve this it is necessary to raise public and professional awareness of our specialist services and to maintain it over time. Marketing our services is a crucial part of our way forward.
You will join the Board of Trustees who meets 6 weekly with the Senior Manager to discuss operational and developmental matters. You will also be involved in occasional email exchanges between meetings to further discussions and share information ahead of meetings.
We are looking for someone who has experience in marketing and is eager to apply that to enabling people with dementia having the support and meaningful life style they deserve.
They will be a team player and contribute to discussions with the Trustee Board and the Senior Manager. Regular attendance at Board meetings is important in order to establish a good working dialogue between the members and to understand the functioning of the Charity.
They will share the vision of developing the charity's services both in the areas it already serves and in time to a wider community.
The numbers of people with dementia are increasing but the provision of valuable service is difficult to access for many. People with dementia loose a quality of life and families struggle to provide the care and meaningful existence they want for their loved one.
We have a team of skilled Practitioners lead by an experienced Senior Manager, knowing the scale of dementia in the community we are anxious to extend the charity's services. The trustee would be a key player in making this happen knowing that the benefits felt by the client and their families are considerable..
We are increasingly confronted by the debilitating condition of dementia. There is also plenty of evidence that, with skilled support, the person with dementia can experience a quality of life they would like and which can slow the rate of decline. Offering services which address this need for good activity based dementia care is of itself as rewarding as it is essential.
The Trustees provide a secure background in which the management and staff are able to put these goals into practice knowing that they are themselves being supported by a competent and sympathetic Board.
