We Need You! Trustees Needed For Dementia Charity
Dementia Friendly Keighley (DFK) is seeking suitably skilled trustees of all backgrounds to assist in the running of this essential organisation and support us on our journey to make Keighley, ‘Dementia-Friendly’.
We are a small but impactful charity, at the heart of our diverse community, offering a much used and well-respected service to people living with dementia and their family, friends and carers in the Keighley area.
Becoming a trustee for DFK will be an exciting and fulfilling role, and you will be hugely important to the charity, working closely with the DFK Information and Support Centre. Equally, volunteering to govern the charity will enhance skills and knowledge for your career development.
We need trustees with a range of skill sets and are particularly looking for applicants that will diversify our board, bringing a wider variety of lived experience, knowledge and expertise.
Ideally, we are looking for trustees with some experience or knowledge of leadership in an organisation, small or large (this could be voluntary), awareness of the issues around dementia and links within Keighley. An understanding of managing a business (finance, facilities and IT) are beneficial but not essential.
We are also particularly looking for someone willing to take on the secretarial role to the board, as the trustee with current responsibility is stepping down after several years.
Most importantly, we are seeking individuals who have an interest in what we do, and enthusiasm to help us do it.
A commitment to the organisation (trustees meet for six weekly, two hour board meetings at the DFK Information and Support Centre)
A willingness to devote the necessary time and effort
Good, independent judgement
An ability to think creatively
This is a vital role, helping ensure we can continue our support for people living with dementia. As a trustee, you will have a real opportunity to offer your unique skill set to help the strategic progression of the charity.
