We are rated ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the independent regulator for adult health and social care services.

We pride ourselves on being a values based and driven charity and are looking to broaden the skills within the Trustee team to drive the charity forward.

In particular, we are looking for individuals with one of the following expertise: a recognised accountancy qualification, legal expertise, or fundraising experience. First time trustees are welcome.
