Who we are

Our mission is to ‘… provide and maintain affordable accommodation in a community environment on three sites in the Reading and Earley area. Our residents are adults in need who are of good character and are able to live independently.’


The role

Generally,
potential candidates will:

·
Assist with formulating and delivering
the organisation’s strategic aims

·
Be an active member of the Trustee
body in exercising its responsibilities and functions and be part of a
harmonious and collegial Board

·
Maintain a collaborative and
supportive relationship with the managerial staff

·
Fulfil such other duties as may from
time to time be required by the Board

·
Possess a strong interest in, and
commitment to, the vision and values of the organisation, and its future
development.

Trustees
are encouraged to play a full part in the vibrant life of the organisation.
Those already in this role find it extremely fulfilling and are a vital part of
the team structure. Trustees should be able to commit to 4 meetings per annum, including
Sub-committee meetings (timings to be decided). Meetings are usually held at
Penton House, Kennet Island, Reading, and Liberty House, Lower Earley but some
Committee meetings are held remotely. Accordingly, living in or knowledge of
RAC’s area of benefit will be useful, but not essential.
