We are looking for an enthusiastic volunteer to join our Trustee Board – to help us to develop and implement a clear strategy for the future.
About Cygnus Support:
As a local charity we are dedicated to improving the mental health & emotional wellbeing of people across Northumberland. Our mission is to empower people to improve their lives by providing counselling, education, and support in their local community.
About the Trustee role:
As a Cygnus Trustee you will attend board meetings every 6 - 8 weeks (currently online but may require in person in Northumberland in the future) to discuss progress against plans, consider outlook, and support the Team - ensuring that Cygnus delivers the strongest possible service to those who need us most.
Our Ideal Candidate will have a passion for improving mental health support for local communities.
Experience in the following areas would also be beneficial, adding to the skillset already within the organisation and helping to bring a diversity of knowledge and ideas to the wider board and organisational discussions.
- Online service delivery
What difference will you make:
At a time when mental health and wellbeing support services are stretched, across both Public and Private sectors - we have an opportunity to develop services to close gaps in provision and reduce waiting times. By giving your time, energy, skills, and experience – you can play a key role in improving people’s lives.
A current DBS certificate will be required, and references will be taken up prior to appointment.
Many thanks for your interest,
The Trustee Board
