Join our Committee of Management
We work with people affected by homelessness, providing person-centred support and quality accommodation
We are a vibrant not for profit registered Housing Association which provides a range of support services to vulnerable people with support needs and those experiencing homelessness.
We work with nine Scottish Local Authorities delivering supported accommodation and floating support services. We own a small stock of accommodation which we maintain and we lease accommodation from other organisations. The majority of our work involves delivering local authority contracts for Housing Support. These contracts are regularly tendered under competitive tendering. We are currently looking at diversification activities to develop new income streams.
We are looking for board members who have relevant skills in areas such as:
- supported accommodation and commissioning of supported housing
- housing support services
- strategic planning
- charity work
- management of change
- social enterprise
- health/social work
Management Board meetings occur every six weeks where we discuss business planning. They are held during the day between 10.30am and 12.30pm.
Board members also serve on a relevant committee (Finance, Housing Management (supported accommodation only), HR and Developmentment & Maintenace) which meets every seven weeks. These meetings are also held in our Head Office in Glasgow during normal working hours. Relevant training and support is provided, generally during the day.
We welcome applications from women, people from ethnic minority groups and people with disabilities as they are currently under-represented on our board.
This is a voluntary role. Board membership is unpaid but reasonable out of pocket expenses properly incurred will be reimbursed.
As we work with vulnerable people we require our board members to undertake the CRBS checks in order to join the Protecting of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme.
