Vacancy for a Trustee

You could be the person to help steer our charity through an exciting future

The Disability Resource Centre is an independent local charity delivering a wide range of information, advice and support services to disabled people, their families and carers in Bedfordshire and surrounding areas.

We are celebrated 25 years of service to our community in 2019.

The Disability Resource Centre is a national model of partnership working, and leads the way in implementing new health and social care-related initiatives.

The role of Trustee is to give senior staff a clear strategic direction, as well as support in the effective and efficient delivery of the charity’s services.

Trustees make decisions that really matter, including in areas of finance, human resources, marketing, retail, training and business development.

Please see the www.gov.uk web page for more details about being a Trustee.

Applications from disabled people and carers, or those with an interest in disability issues are particularly welcome.

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

Please send your completed application form, CV, Trustee declaration form and a covering letter saying why you would like to be involved with The Disability Resource Centre to info@drcbeds.org.uk or send your application in the post.
