North Wales Regional Equality Network (NWREN) is a registered charity which is committed to working to resist racism, overcome all forms of discrimination and work to build resilience and solidarity amongst those most threatened by hatred or disadvantaged by inequality. They are currently seeking to increase the membership of their Trustee Board to enhance their mix of knowledge and skills, both to further NWREN’s vision and to ensure the charity continues to be effectively led. They would like to find several professional people who could contribute their skills and experience to support and expand the work of the organisation. Whatever experience or expertise you could bring to NWREN would be very welcome.
Centre of Sign-Sight-Sound (COS) is the regional organisation that supports all Deaf, deafened, hard of hearing and Deafblind people across Wales as well as their family, friends, carers, colleagues and the services and organisations that support them.
They need people who can help towards achieving organisation’s mission and ensure that it is effectively managed. Trustees would need to be able to make a commitment to COS and devote the necessary time, have strategic vision, independent judgements, an ability to think creatively and willingness to speak their mind, to be there to advise and oversee the work of the staff in meeting the charity’s objectives and ensuring that that the charity resources are being used effectively. Whilst staff have expertise in their area of responsibility COS needs that to be reflected in the Board of Trustees so are looking for members with backgrounds in: Performance Management; Human Resources; Employment Law; Finance and Accounting; Fundraising; Policy and Advocacy; Safeguarding. Trustee positions are unpaid, but the COS can reimburse travel and subsistence costs to enable full participation in the meetings and activities.
