Do you believe passionately that everyone should have the opportunity to live a full and aspiring life? If so, you can help shape our organisation and make a difference!

Active Prospects is an ambitious national award winning care provider in the South East who supports people with learning disabilities, autism, mental health needs, acquired brain injury and those with complex needs and behaviours of concern, to live full and aspirational lives.

To support us in our future growth plans we are now looking for three Board Members and in particular looking for skills in

• Property Development

• Strategic Business

As a Board Member, you will ensure that we uphold our charitable purpose and objectives; work in line with our vision, aims and organisational objectives and provide overall policy and direction.

Our Board Members help set our priorities, and support and hold to account our paid members of staff to deliver our plans. Together, we ensure our mission remains focused and we strive towards our vision.

We hope that by becoming a Trustee with us it will give you the reward of giving something back, making an impact locally, and being involved in bringing strategy to life.

What are we looking for?

Board Members should have different skills, backgrounds and experience that together give a rounded Board.

Different experiences and perspectives are important and a Board Member that also reflects the people and communities they service will help improve effectiveness. An effective Board Member will need a range of knowledge, attributes and personal experience to enable them to work towards the aims and objectives of the voluntary organisation.

The range and diversity of a Board will come from people with different perspectives including business skills, service user, family or social experience, general interests or commitment to the goals of the organisation. Active Prospects is particularly looking for Board Members with experience of Strategic Business and / or Care and Health Services, ICT and Property Development. You will help shape and deliver our new future plans.

Other details

Reasonable travel expenses are payable, and the time commitment is up to eight 2-hour evening meetings a year, plus an annual strategy away day normally held in November. Board meetings are held at our head office in Reigate.
