Crisis was founded in 1967. We never intended to exist for this long. We didn’t expect to be here, facing a similar crisis, 50 years on. We certainly don’t intend to be needed in 50 years’ time. At Crisis, we believe that homelessness should not exist in 21st Century Great Britain. Tackling this injustice is what motivates our people. It is not inevitable, and policy choices can be made to end homelessness for good.
This underpins our very recent five-year strategy. It is why we produced a carefully researched plan Everybody In: How to End Homelessness in Great Britain, in which we set out what needs to be done if the governments of the UK, Scotland and Wales are committed to ending homelessness. It is at the centre of everything we do. We are now looking for up to three trustees to join our Board to help influence the change we want to see.
Between us, we have a wealth of professional expertise from different sectors. With these new appointments we are looking to bring in different perspectives and areas of expertise that will complement and strengthen our existing skill-set and experience. We work with a diverse range of people and always seek to meet them where they are. Further increasing the diversity of our Board is an important part of ensuring this organisation continues to do that to the best of our ability.
Alongside the statutory duties of a trustee role, we are keen to attract individuals looking specifically to bring their commercial focus to our work. We are particularly keen to attract those with a strong track record of:
- Personal experience of homelessness
- Fundraising and income generation
- Marketing and communications, brand positioning and audience insight
- Evidence-led campaigning and social change, either at regional or national level
- Commercial sector Chief Executive or financial leadership of major, complex operational businesses
In accordance with our ethos and values, you will be prepared to speak up objectively and with integrity, to demonstrate you independence of thought and judgement and to act with curiosity, courage and compassion.
