with POSCH

We urgently need committed and skilled volunteers NOW to join us in becoming Trustees of our Board. We meet just six times each year (at the moment virtually) and we are currently at an exciting stage, as we take POSCH through a period of change to ensure its sustainability beyond Covid-19. As POSCH is run by just a small number of volunteers, you will be expected to take on tasks between formal board meetings and we would ask you to commit to us for at least one year to help us to achieve some of our ambitions.

You will be joining a very friendly and passionate group of people who really want to continue POSCH’s success and see it become sustainable and the “go to” local charity for supporting parents well into the future.

We’re also currently busy with succession planning and interim leadership arrangements. Enquiries are welcome from people that feel they may have something to offer for leadership of the trustee board.

Skills or experience required?:

Ideally you will be a parent yourself or have a background in special educational needs or disabilities – AND/OR – you will have a key skill that we need to help us to shape our future.
