Char­ity ap­peal for new trus­tees

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

A CHAR­ITY which sup­ports vul­ner­a­ble adults around Mac­cles­field is on the look out for new trus­tees to join its board.

The East Cheshire Hous­ing Con­sor­tium (ECHC) sup­ports around 80 vul­ner­a­ble in­di­vid­u­als by pro­vid­ing es­sen­tial sup­port ser­vices within the com­mu­nity.

Over the course of the last two years, the or­gan­i­sa­tion con­tin­ues to grow and works closely with the com­mu­nity teams to de­velop and main­tain sup­port pro­grammes across the re­gion.

With fur­ther growth planned, the or­gan­i­sa­tion is look­ing for two trus­tees to help guide its di­rec­tion.

James Bis­set, chair­man, said: “We’re look­ing for peo­ple who can help the or­gan­i­sa­tion de­liver on its strate­gic per­for­mance and wider busi­ness plan.

“The in­di­vid­ual needs to have a broad back­ground of busi­ness ex­per­tise and can help us re­spond to the in­creas­ing de­mand of pro­vid­ing ser­vices to vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple liv­ing in the lo­cal com­mu­nity. It’s im­por­tant that the new trus­tees have pas­sion, ideas and good con­nec­tions within East Cheshire.”

Trus­tees need to be avail­able to at­tend a meet­ing ev­ery six weeks, as well as the oc­ca­sional in­for­mal meet­ing.

Brenda Wright, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer for the or­gan­i­sa­tion, added: “The meet­ings are held at the of­fices of ECHC and give the trus­tees the op­por­tu­nity to be a sound­ing board for the rest of the ECHC team in re­la­tion to new devel­op­ments and our con­tin­ued ex­pan­sion.”
