Are you interested in becoming a Trustee at Dewis?

Would you like to make a difference in your local community?

At Dewis, our mission is to alleviate homelessness by providing housing related support to young people, especially those with complex needs, who are homeless or at risk of being homeless. We aim to improve their current circumstances and build resilience for the future.  Our values - Respect, Promote and Encourage; Include, Consult and Support; Empower, Listen and Learn - underpin how we work with one another and those we support.
Our Trustees come from a wide range of backgrounds, and all bring different skills and experiences to our Board.  Our Board meets quarterly for approximately two hours, to receive reports on all areas of the charities activities to ensure good governance.  In addition, the Board meet for an annual Business Planning Session and Training. Members of the Finance Committee attend a further two meetings during the year.

We are keen to recruit Trustees with the following experience:-

* Legal experience particularly in relation to housing/property law.

* Lived experience focussing on mental health and well-being.
