Self Management UK supports people experiencing one or more long-term health condition and is one of the leading providers of self-management structured education support nationally. Now in our 16th year we have provided self-management support to more than 150,000 people, helping to remove the barriers and challenges having a long-term condition can present. In fact, last year our small team of staff and incredible team of volunteers delivered 176 courses to more than 2500 people through 900 individual course workshops totalling more than 2700 of support.
Our size does not reflect our ability, impact or ambition and having just completed a period of significant transformation, we have recently appointed a Head of Operations (Resources & HR) to help deliver the growth of our services and support the development of new exciting programmes of support.
The Honorary Treasurer will play a leading role in the oversight of the finances of the Self Management UK.
Having established a platform from which to expand and with a commitment to promoting high quality self-management we are also seeking to expand the Board by the appointment of two further trustees. We would particularly welcome applications from those with backgrounds in fundraising, commissioning, campaigning, clinical or research areas.
Your time commitment will normally include six Board meetings annually, together with some involvement in committees, plus possibly representing us at occasional events. The majority of meetings are held in our London office with the occasional travel in England.
You will serve an initial term of three years to be eligible for re-appointment for one additional term. This is a voluntary position and so not remunerated, although travel expenses will be reimbursed.
