Job Description

Trustee - withYOU 

Who we are

withYOU is an organisation established in the 1980’s, previously part of Castle Rock Edinvar and latterly Places for People Scotland. In 2018, it separated to become its own independent charity.

Our services cover a broad range of social care areas, but have a unifying focus around ensuring those we support are able to have a safe, secure place to stay, and wherever possible are able to maintain their tenancy.

We work with people 16+. Our service models range from housing support in core and cluster, outreach services and we have a number of 24/7 supported services, including homelessness hostels.

Our services cover:

•     Homelessness, Prevention and Housing Support

•     Older Age Care

•     Learning disability and Neurodiversity.

We work with over 1200 people each year, employ 230 staff and have an annual turnover of over £6m. We have ambitions to become a more recognised provider of high-quality care and support. Alongside substantial internal transformation activity, we are also undergoing a re-branding exercise which will culminate in a new name and visual identity, alongside new external communications approaches to support our development.

 

Our Vision

To enable the people we support to live their best lives.

 

Our Mission

We provide expert services that make a positive impact for people who require support with independent living. Our people are passionate, caring professionals, thriving within our progressive learning environment.

 

Our Values

Respect – “We respect the choices and dignity of our people, and ensure integrity in all we do.”

Compassion – “We care deeply about one another, promote diversity and create spaces of compassion free from judgement.”

Thrive – “We learn, develop, work and grow together, supporting people to thrive.”

 

Who we are looking for?

We are undertaking a substantial transformation and improvement programme, and are looking for several trustees who can play an integral role in the governance of our charity.

You do not need to have been a Trustee before, nor hold a senior position elsewhere. What we are looking for is people with an interest in supporting our organisation to develop through contribution of their own skill sets, a passion for ensuring high quality care and support is provided to those in our services, and a desire to play an active role in our governance.

We would particularly like to speak to individuals with a background in:

•     Finance

•     Social Care / Social Work / Health

•     Legal

•     Governance

•     Risk

 

However, if you have a background in an alternative area, but are interested in the work of withYOU and believe you could bring energy and value to our organisation, please do get in touch.
