New chair of trustees
Kensington and Chelsea Social Council
Kensington and Chelsea Social Council (KCSC) is the umbrella body for the Voluntary and Community Sector in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea. After years of dedication from the current Chair we are now seeking a new Chair to lead the organisation. At the same time we are presenting a great opportunity for up to three new trustees to join the Board. The Board of Trustees are elected by our members at the AGM on a three year basis. Currently we are a diverse board of 11 which includes local residents and trustees from across the voluntary, statutory and private sectors. Some board members are coming towards the end of their time on the board so it is vital that we regain the skills and knowledge that they have contributed over the years.
Trustee Board Member
StreetDoctors teaches lifesaving skills to young people at risk of youth violence across the UK. We do this through our movement of young healthcare volunteers who teach emergency first aid to 11-25 year olds, and create safe spaces for them to discuss attitudes to violence. We empower young people to become street doctors in their own communities. The StreetDoctors Board of Trustees collectively needs to recruit new trustees with skills and experience in income generation and fundraising, research and impact and safeguarding. You will be joining a skilled and committed Board of Trustees, an expert staff team, and hundreds of volunteer healthcare students across the UK. You will need to be able to both lead our strategic thinking and help us develop effective and realistic approaches for a dynamic volunteer-led organisation.
CHICKS has been through a period of change, building on the foundations of 27 years of excellence in the delivery of respite breaks for young people from across the UK. We are now focused on building a future that guarantees our support for thousands more young people in a manner that is relevant, sustainable and ensures we are equipped to handle the challenges in the years ahead. We have a new and exciting plan for the next few years, including a new brand launch in 2020. Our strategy combines our commitment to improve the quality and consistency of our support for young people, shaping a confident charity that builds upon its established values and resources, alongside real enthusiasm and confidence to grow for the future. We are facing challenging times, and the need for strong and supportive governance has never been more important. Working in close partnership with the Chief Executive, Senior Leadership Team, wider colleagues and the young people we support, we are now seeking new Trustees to join our Board to bring additional experience and complimentary skills to the governance of this incredible charity.
