Ridgegate Home was established in 1946. It is a charitable 23 bed residential care home for the elderly. It is a large, detached period building. The home is administered by a Board of Governors, who have an active role in running the home.
What will you be doing?
We currently have 3 trustee vacancies including Chair and Treasurer. The ideal candidates should have good leadership skills, organisational skills, people management skills and negotiation skills. The board meets 4 times per year to discuss the quarterly accounts, and update on operational and strategic matters. Interim meetings are held as required. The home’s registered manager communicates weekly regarding matters arising.
What are we looking for?
A background in Finance, HR, IT, Healthcare, Legal, Marketing or fundraising would be an advantage.
What difference will you make?
The work of our Trustees enables us to continue to make a difference to the lives of our residents, by providing strong leadership and ensuring that our organisation is in the best position to serve our community. Our Trustees know that it is extremely important that Ridgegate Home remains financially viable as a charity. We invite you to share your skills for a cause you care about, whilst building your network and cultivate new skillsets as leaders and make a meaningful impact on this community.
