Join the Grace Eyre Foundation Board!

Grace Eyre supports 600+ 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 on 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 is skilled and committed.

To help support this ambitious plan, Trustees are sought. We are particularly looking for individuals with lived experience of learning disability and/or autism, professional expertise in areas of Digital and Technology and Charitable Fundraising.

We welcome applicants from the black and Asian minority ethnic communities 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.
