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 celebrating 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.

Improve your confidence. Reduce stress.

New course starts in February. We have just started the first group on this course and we’re now looking for more Luton residents to join the next course that starts in February.

We know and understand how difficult it can be to find work if you are a carer. You may struggle to find paid employment that fits around your caring commitments. 

If you wish to return to work in some way, but are unsure how to start, then we can help with 1-2-1 support with our employment advisors.

For 2020 if you would like to make a difference to your family’s life just make contact to see how our Support Into Employment programme may be able to help you.

Learn all about becoming a volunteer for our charity at our special new volunteer event on Wednesday 5th February 2020. Read more about volunteering at The Disability Resource Centre.
