SPACE-NI seeking to recruit Voluntary Trustees/Directors.

Could you help us make a difference?

A trustees’ information pack, is available below for download along with an application form; annual accounts and governance detail are also available if required.

We need strategic thinkers with drive, ambition and commitment to help us plan for the future and deliver the best support possible for Space beneficiaries, staff and volunteers. We already have a great and committed bunch of volunteer trustees, who play a vital role in helping Space develop its charitable purpose however we are particularly interested to hear from candidates with a great eye for detail who have one or more of the following: Experience in Business law, Fundraising, Social work/disability issues, Human Resources, PR/Event, management, Retail. We are also keen to diversify our board of trustees and would encourage applications from all ages and backgrounds.

The Space Board meets a minimum of five times a year.  We request that members attend at least 90% of Board meetings per year (travel expenses can be reimbursed).  There may also be a requirement to attend sub-group meetings on occasion. As a member of the Board of Directors a commitment to the ethos, aims, and objectives of SPACE-NI is essential.  SPACE is a charity registered with HMRC, and with the Charity Commission of NI (number NIC105005) formerly known as South Down Family Health Initiative, SPACE supports individuals and families through challenging times in their lives.
