Trustees Wanted at Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service

//Trustees Wanted at Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service

Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service is looking for new people to join our Board of Trustees

Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service is a vibrant, highly respected, innovative and multi award winning charity. We provide services to people in acute mental health crisis, which are alternatives to hospital admission or statutory services.

The Board of Trustees play a crucial role in leading and steering the organisation and upholding its vision and philosophy.

The role of Trustee involves meeting, usually on a Monday afternoon on a bi monthly basis and occasional additional involvement, such as sitting on interview panels for staff.

You will need to be able to make a minimum commitment to LSLCS of 6 afternoon meetings per year.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for people with direct experience of emotional distress, who are currently using mental health services and who have an interest in alternative, pioneering ways of working with distress and crisis.

We are also seeking trustees with legal expertise.

We are particularly keen to achieve a more diverse Board of Trustees and we welcome applications from all sections of the community.

All new trustees are subject to a DBS check.
