Trustee for Fulham Good Neighbours

Location: London

Date Posted: 25/01/2019

Closing Date: 25/04/2019

Job Description

Fulham Good Neighbours is recruiting a Trustee.

The role

We have up to 10 trustees on our board and as one of them, you will be responsible for the governance of this well-loved charity. You will be required to attend bi-monthly evening board meetings, in addition, you will have the opportunity to contribute to other initiatives like the annual Parsons Green Fair. Board members, together, manage the organisation, employ all paid staff, make policy and ensure that it is implemented, ensure the proper financial management of the organisation, and that it adheres to all legal responsibilities as a registered charity and as a company limited by guarantee.

The candidate

You will be a local Fulham resident, preferably with some governance experience. We are looking especially for candidates who have HR or legal background and encourage applications by those who come from groups currently under-represented on the board: people who are disabled, come from BME communities or are under 35 years old. As a trustee, you can serve 3 terms of up to 3 years each and we are looking for candidates who are willing and able to contribute for the full period of 9 years.

The organisation

Established in 1966, Fulham Good Neighbours supports older people, including those with dementia, with practical tasks at home such as basic DIY, gardening, and decorating. We also run a range of social clubs and are supported by over 60 volunteers. In 2016 we were declared The Best Charity in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.

What we offer

We are an award-winning, well established local charity with a small but friendly team of 7 staff members (6 of whom work part-time). There is a well-established board of directors with 8 other trustees. You will have the chance to make a real difference to our long term sustainability and success and through that impact positively on the lives of local older people.
