Do you have skills and enthusiasm to join the Adult Dyslexia Centre as a new trustee?

Trustee / Committee volunteers needed for Adult Dyslexia Centre (Thames Valley) in SL6

Do you have skills and enthusiasm to join the Adult Dyslexia Centre as a new trustee? Could you offer business or governance skills, a grasp of education or disability?

We are looking for enthusiastic new people to complement existing trustees, some of whom are service users and some are founding trustees who would like to move on.
You would be very welcome if you have ideas or skills in organisational sustainability or effective models of funding. Maybe you have charity governance experience, but even if you just have enthusiasm or commitment to our cause, we’d like to speak with you.

What do you get?
A chance to augment your experience of charities and particularly of an organisation that supports people with a disability.
An opportunity to use your organisational-development skills and business-growth knowledge, your understanding of financial sustainability and funding, possibly in a different environment or context.
Satisfaction of giving something back to the community.
A boost to your career and CV.
You do not need a detailed understanding of dyslexia, as information and training can be made available.
