Vacancies for new Trustees

The Disability Resource Centre is governed by a Board of Trustees who meet six times a year. The majority of the Trustees have personal experience of living with a disability or caring for someone with a disability. They use their knowledge to advise the management team.

The role of Trustee is voluntary, with out of pocket expenses being paid.

We are keen to welcome new Trustees to the Board. Please check our vacancy notice.
