Job Details

Who we are

YMCA DownsLink Group operates across Surrey and Sussex helping children and young people have a fair chance to be who they want to be. Each year we support thousands of children and young people up to the age of 25, providing a safe home, increasing life skills and self-confidence, and improving emotional and mental health and well-being.

With a turnover of approximately £17million, 370 people and 80 volunteers we offer supported housing and sustaining accommodation, specialist information, advice and support and emotional health and well-being services.

Children and young people are at the heart of our thinking, and we are acutely aware of the challenges they face in our post-pandemic and economically uncertain world. Our services are needed now more than ever before, and our current three-year strategy will see us focus on ensuring we are strong, agile and responsive to meet their increasingly complex needs.

As we continue to focus on supporting positive change for children and young people, we seek two new Trustees to join us and actively contribute to this stage of our journey.

About the roles

Bringing your expertise and values that align to our own you’ll be energised by our strategic priorities of delivering psychologically informed services, amplifying youth voice and leadership and continuing to ensure we are a great place to work.

We are looking for two trustees; one who brings experience in a regulated housing environment and the other who is a strategic finance professional and financially qualified.

Alongside your professional expertise, you will be committed to ensuring children and young people’s voices and experiences help us in decision-making at all levels, are committed to learning, will ensure we continue to be an effective and financially sustainable organisation and are equitable, diverse and inclusive.

We welcome people of all faiths and those of none, although applicants must be prepared to respect and promote the founding Christian principles of the organisation.

Applications for this role close at 9 a.m. Monday 3rd June 2024.
