Grace Eyre supports 500+ people with learning disabilities and autism to achieve their dreams and wishes. We are a charity that currently works across Sussex and in some parts of London. We believe that as a charity we need to campaign with, work with and include people who use our services and their families and friends, especially in these challenging times.

Grace Eyre is working to an exciting new strategic plan – Our Plan 2020-2025 – which includes user leadership and co-production, growth, increasing our influence to develop high quality, local and innovative services, diversifying our income from fundraising and trading, making our buildings fit for purpose and ensure we value and have a workforce that are skilled and committed.

To help support this ambitious plan, a Deputy Chair and up to four Trustees are sought. We are particularly looking for individuals with insight into the people who use our services or similar services provided by other organisations and/or professional expertise in areas of Digital and Technology, Charitable Fundraising, Income Diversification, Transforming Care and Human Resources.

We welcome applicants who are underrepresented on the Board. We value diverse perspectives from the widest possible range of backgrounds.

Board meetings are held six times per year. Expenses are paid.
