Closing date extended
We are currently looking to recruit additional Trustees. If you, or anyone you know, are interested please see below for more details.
Dementia Harborough is based in Market Harborough and was formed in March 2011 to provide social activities for those newly diagnosed with dementia together with their carer. We provide a place where they can have fun together and jointly support each other.
In 2016 we became a fully registered Charity and now we run a range of activities for people affected by dementia, including monthly Dementia Café and Singing for Memories groups, and trips out to places of interest. All our activities are run by volunteers, and we have no paid staff.
Together with The Well, Kibworth we also run a monthly Dementia Cafe in Kibworth Beauchamp.
We are seeking new people to join our board of trustees to fill vacancies which have arisen and to allow for succession planning. We are particularly keen to recruit members of the local community who have knowledge, experience and skills in at least one of the following:
· Dementia and dementia care and support
· Health and social care, in statutory, private or voluntary sectors
· Leadership and management
· ICT and web publishing
· Finance and accounting
· Business administration
· Events organisation
· PR and marketing
· Volunteer recruitment and support
In addition to our Annual General Meeting, Board meetings are held four times a year at a time to suit all board members. The Board is responsible for setting the strategy and policies of Dementia Harborough and ensuring that members and volunteers are well supported. Our trustees may also undertake specific roles which involve additional time commitments. All roles are voluntary. To find out more about joining the Board, please contact our Chair Peter Hirst before 31st October 2022, by leaving a message on 07594 649566 or emailing email@example.com and indicating how you feel you might be able to contribute to our charity.
