Become a Trustee at Inclusion London
Inclusion London is a London wide equality organisation run by and for Deaf and Disabled people. We work to make sure Deaf and Disabled people have a strong, collective voice and that Deaf and Disabled people’s organisations (DDPOs) have the support they need to bring about equality and inclusion for our communities.
We are a small but effective organisation. We actively work with over 70 DDPOs in London and have just agreed an exciting new 3-year strategic business plan Our plan sets out the work we want to do including actively supporting our sector to become more intersectional and inclusive, developing Deaf and Disabled people’s leadership and ensuring disability equality is on the agenda at a local, regional and national level.
Our Board of Trustees play a very important role in our organisation shaping and supporting our current work and future direction. We want to make sure our Board reflects the voices and diversity of DDPOs and Deaf and Disabled people who are often not heard.
We have recently had some of our most experienced trustees retire and we are looking for both experienced Trustees and younger Deaf and Disabled people to develop their leadership skills and experience as Trustees. We especially want to hear from Black and minoritized Deaf and Disabled people and Deaf and Disabled people from the LGBTQI+ community.
Being a Trustee is an unpaid role lasting 3 years. To carry out the duties of a Trustee you will need to take part in about 5 Board meetings each year which will take about 20 hours of your time each year. There are also opportunities to get more involved with sub-groups, campaigns and further supporting our work. All trustees will receive a full induction and training.
We particularly welcome Trustees with a background in:
- Speaking up, campaigning & changing policy
- Being part of a DDPO
- Social justice campaigns
Closing date for written or video applications: 11am on 12 September 2022
Interviews will take place on ZOOM: Week beginning 19 September 2022
