Hopscotch is looking for a Trustee with Health and Social Care expertise

We are a community led organisation working with BME women and families in Camden and the surrounding areas. We have a turnover of about £2m have over 90 staff members doing incredible work with the most vulnerable people.

We work on a number of issues including welfare support, advocacy, employment skills service, VAWG and providing personal and domiciliary care in the community, the only provider in the area which is also a charity. This culturally bespoke Homecare service is for the elderly and other vulnerable groups, with care workers that speak a number of relevant languages making this a sought after service.

We are looking to recruit a Trustee with experience and interest in the Health and Social Care sector to support our Homecare work so that we can grow safely and steadily and continue to provide essential services to our community.

The Trustees meets quarterly and work on the strategic vision of the charity as well as supporting the staff with matters including quality assurance, safeguarding and policies, financial oversight, fundraising. We have annual away days to discuss the broader needs of the community and the wider BME women’s agenda, to ensure Hopscotch’s work remain relevant to the women who need support.

Our Homecare Sub Committee also meets quarterly and could do with your experience to keep the service on track. There are many other opportunities to get involved based on skills and availability. It is a highly engaged team with a range of expertise which enjoys working together, with our Chief Executive ensuring a very manageable workload for each Trustee.

We welcome all applications and particularly look forward to hearing from people with homecare/health and social care experience with either a working knowledge or keen interest in the voluntary and community sector.

If you are passionate about raising the standard and shoring up the future of Hopscotch’s Homecare business, please consider joining us by sending your CV and a cover letter to our Chief Executive, ceo@hopscotchawc.org.uk – it could be the fulfilling role you’ve been looking for.
