Could you shape our charity’s future as one of our new Trustees?

7 October 2020

Children and young adults with complex needs and visual impairment often face barriers to learning, living and taking an active, independent place in society.

WESC Foundation provides the specialist expertise, equipment and adapted facilities to inspire, challenge and empower these young people from across the UK to live their best lives.

We fight to make sure that they can take their place in a society that values them for their contribution and supports their rights and independence.

Our charity is now looking to recruit three new Trustees to help shape this vital work.

Plans to develop our board

Existing Trustees bring a wide variety of skills and experiences across fields including education, business and finance, property, and local government. In 2020 we are aiming to strengthen our collective expertise by appointing three new trustees

  • a trustee with experience and expertise in SEND education (no previous experience of holding a Trustee position is required)
  • a trustee with experience and expertise of adult care services (no previous experience of holding a Trustee position is required)
  • a generalist trustee with experience of charity management or governance either through a previous trustee role or as a senior leader in a relevant charit

We hope one of our new trustees might be able to take on the role of chair in the next 6-12 months when our current chair retires.
