Wide range of skills
Our Trustees are all volunteers and give a great deal of time and expertise to Dementia Care. They bring to us a broad range of business experience and are responsible for governance of the charity and its strategic direction. In addition, a number of our Trustees have personal experience of caring for someone with dementia and all are deeply committed to supporting the work of Dementia Care.
Our trustee meetings take place every two months, typically at 4.00 pm on a Monday. There are also four sub-committees that again meet once every two months:
- Care Quality,
- Health & Safety,
- Audit & Finance; and
- Housing Strategy.
As a Trustee you can join these sub-committees if these areas are of interest to you, or if you have the relevant skills and/or experience.
All Trustees undergo an induction process and necessary training when you join us.
For trustees who wish to be more involved in understanding how our day-to-day services operate and in being involved with the people receiving our care, we will obtain an enhanced DBS clearance.
Trustees serve for three year terms, but can apply for re-election. You can find out more about the role of a Trustee on the gov.uk website.
