Board Members (Unpaid Role)

Trustee Recruitment Pack

Stonewall Housing works exclusively with LGBTQ+ people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and we have ambitious plans to help more people access specialist advice, support and accommodation.  To help us achieve this we are expanding our current Board of Trustees and are looking for Board Members to join our team.

This is an exciting time for Stonewall Housing, we have a new CEO in post and have developed an ambitious ten-year strategy which is focused on organisational strength and growth.

We know that tens of thousands of LGBTQ+ people across the United Kingdom would benefit from our support and with your help we want to ensure that we can reach as many of them as possible.

We firmly believe that the Board should be made up of people who come from diverse backgrounds, with diverse experiences and with 13% of our service users trans, 8% non-binary and 57% people of colour, we are particularly aware that we require more representation from these groups.

We are particularly interested in hearing from you if you have experience in the following areas:

Safeguarding and Risk Management – strategic leadership in ensuring organisational safety as well as the management of risk for service users, volunteers and staff

Fundraising – strategic leadership on the generation of unrestricted income and sustainable funding to facilitate organisational growth

Public Relations and Communications – strategic leadership in brand, tone of voice and engagement with media, social media and communication professionals

IT and Web Development – strategic leadership in ensuring the organisation is making best use of information technology

Mental Health – strategic leadership in ensuring best practice with regards to promoting positive mental health for service users, volunteers and staff

Most of all we want to hear from people who are passionate about LGBTQ+ people. Passionate about making sure people have somewhere safe to call home and passionate about helping organisations succeed.
