|Closes:||10 July, 2022|
Empower Housing Association provides high quality housing that is specifically adapted to the needs of adults with disabilities, enabling them to live independently within their community. Founded in 2003 and based in Chorley in Lancashire, we currently provide around 211 homes. Our work makes an immense difference to the lives of our customers, offering them the tailored support and advice they need and the peace of mind that if something goes wrong in their home, we’re there to help them fix it.
This is a great opportunity for someone who is passionate about supporting people to live independent lives: a chance to invest your skills and experience where it can make a real difference. Our Board Members work closely with our senior leaders to set the long-term strategic priorities for the organisation: making important decisions on where we should commit our resources and setting out our ambitions for the future. They also play an important role in ensuring that effective governance underpins what we do. That means monitoring organisational performance to ensure that we live up to our promises and being ready to challenge where needed. You’ll also look to reassure yourself that we are prudent in managing our finances and risk, and that our customers’ best interests are protected at all times.
It isn’t essential for you to have undertaken a Board Member role before. We’d like to hear from people who can bring practical experience and knowledge of care, supported housing or adult social care to the role. We want people who understand the needs of our customers, and advocate on their behalf by standing in their shoes at the Board table. Most importantly you’ll be able to demonstrate your passion and commitment for supporting people with disabilities and a readiness to put their needs at the centre of service design, and to measure success by the positive difference we can make to our customers’ quality of life.
You should be able to commit half a day each week to this work.
