Chair and two new Trustees sought for Together’s board
Posted on 21, January 2013
Together is seeking a new Chair to lead its Board of Trustees as well as two new Trustees with lived experience of mental distress to act as ‘experts by experience’.
The charity is now inviting applications for all three posts from individuals who are passionate about improving the lives of people experiencing mental health issues and who can offer support and strategic direction at the highest level of decision making.
As the charity embarks on an exciting new phase of growth, it is searching for people who share Together’s commitment to offering meaningful self-directed support and its belief in the strength of service user involvement and leadership and the power of peer support in improving mental wellbeing.
Liz Felton, CEO at Together said:
“We would like to thank Professor Anthony Sheehan for the expertise and enthusiasm he has brought to his role as Chair, and also Erica Conway who has done an excellent job as acting Chair during Anthony’s sabbatical year. We now look forward to welcoming a new Chair to help take us through the next stage of Together’s journey.
“A sad goodbye is said to two of our trustees with lived experience of mental distress, to whom we offer huge thanks for their time and valuable perspectives on leadership and direction. We are eager to welcome two new trustees with service user experience to join the two already in post, to help us shape and direct the support we offer through their personal insight”.
