Trustee recruitment

Would you welcome the opportunity to ensure neurodivergent young people and adults, people with learning disabilities and their families, lead healthy, happy, and fulfilling lives?

Would you be interested in becoming a Trustee and applying your skills, expertise, and knowledge to ensure we have a brighter and more sustainable future and continue to grow to meet the ever-increasing need and changing demands of the community we serve?

If the answer to these questions is YES, we would love to hear from you.

Hamelin was founded 40 years ago by two families raising children with learning disabilities, in order to provide life-enriching support that was not readily available, affordable, or easy to access for families just like them. This mission still drives us today and sits at the heart of what we do.

We proudly support families and the community across Essex through our specialist and community outreach services. Our aim is to help the people we support to navigate all aspects of their life; providing care and access to training, employment and leisure opportunities, together with respite for families in need of a much-valued break.

We also have an eye on the future and seek to appoint two new trustees to our board, a dedicated, passionate, and high-performing team who are incredibly proud of being part of Hamelin Trust.

We are looking for individuals who can help us sharpen our thinking and bring new and diverse voices and backgrounds within CARE or INCOME GENERATION to support, drive, and help us deliver our plans.

Previous experience as a Trustee is not necessary, as we are committed to full and appropriate induction, mentoring, training, and support for all new Trustees.
