Brief Description of the role:
Lancashire Mind continues to grow in reach and scope despite challenging circumstances for the sector. Our vision is Mental Wellbeing for All, which is supported by a coherent mission statement: revolutionise attitudes, challenge perceptions, alter provision.
Our work enables people in Lancashire to value and take care of their mental health. Our dedicated team challenge misconceptions about mental health, develop resilience in people from an early age and work with communities to build a happier Lancashire.
Externally, Lancashire Mind is well positioned and well respected in the health, public and third sectors. We are viewed as thought leaders in the areas of mental wellbeing and mental health prevention and we have been instrumental in shifting the county-wide understanding of mental health.
With a number of key trustees reaching the end of their terms of office over the next 12 months, we now seek up to several new board members who share our organisational values and have a passionate belief that prevention and resilience are the key to achieving mental wellbeing.
If you’ d like to play your part in achieving mental wellbeing for all, have skills and talents beneficial to Lancashire Mind and can commit on average two days per month, we’re really interested in hearing from you.
However, we welcome applications from high performing and well-connected individuals who feel that they offer other pertinent skills and/or connections that are not listed above.
Lancashire Mind particularly welcomes applicants who can bring a diversity of thinking to our work and organisation, based on their personal characteristics and experience, be it of disability, ethnicity, faith or sexuality. We particularly welcome applications from individuals that have a lived experience of mental health conditions.
Appointed Trustees will serve a three-year term in office, with an opportunity at the end of that first term to stand for re-election for a second three-year term.
To apply for the Trustee role, send a current CV and a covering letter (no more than two sides of A4) to [email protected] and complete the Lancashire Mind equal opportunities monitoring form (link found in the Trustee pack)
