Board of Trustees seeks Chair-Deadline extended until 26 February

We are looking for a Chair to join our Board of Trustees. Stonewall Housing is in the midst of a positive change and growth process. We are looking for a dynamic Chair for this fulfilling and exciting role to help us build on our achievements and continue the great work we have done so far.


The post of Chair is an unpaid role. Minimum commitment is to attend 6 board meetings per year.  The Chair is also expected to have regular meetings with the Chief Executive, and also represent the Organisation at various events and meetings with key stakeholders.

Bob Green, CEO says: 'After 9 years on Stonewall Housing's Board of Trustees and 6 years as Chair, we regret to announce that Andrew van Doorn has decided to step-down from the position.  Andrew has been an inspiration for trustees and staff as the organisation has faced significant challenges through recent years.  However, he leaves the organisation on a stronger footing with its new Growth Strategy, which aims to improve housing advice and support services for LGBT+ people.'

On announcing his retirement from the Board Andrew said: "Being Chair of Stonewall Housing has been both enjoyable and rewarding. It has been a real pleasure to work alongside CEO Bob Green OBE, a dedicated staff team and fellow trustees, steering the organisation through some difficult times. Stonewall Housing is a brilliant and much needed organisation, and as we find ourselved in the grip of a housing and homelessness crisis, the specific needs of LGBT+ people cannot and should not be forgotten."

We are particularly keen to recruit trans people as they are currently under-represented on the Board.

Deadline for applications 19 February

The post will be filled by someone who is committed to challenging direct and indirect discrimination experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans* people from all sections of our communities.
