Non-Executive Board Members
With a mission to provide positive, life-changing support across Edinburgh, East, West and Midlothian, with YOU is an organisation that seeks to provide care and overcome barriers for a range of people in need of support. From its early roots in the 1980s, with YOU has grown to provide housing support and mixed community care; reshaping care delivery with the development of the ‘Being Me’ service and beyond. With YOU’s unique position is committed to providing a range of services which reflect the involvement they have across multiple areas of social care. This includes supporting people with autism, those experiencing homelessness, learning disabilities, mental health and supporting the older generation to live independently.
With over 40 years of experience, with YOU work with over 400 people in Edinburgh and the Lothians.
The words of people with YOU support:
Friendly, Supportive, Listen, There for me, Understanding, Caring, Make a difference, Work with me, Helpful, Support me to live in my home, Linking in with the community, Find solutions, Treating me like a person, Doing things differently, Humbled, Inspired
With YOU are looking to add to their Board with the appointment of new Non-Executive Board Members. The commitment will be a mix of in person and virtual meetings to give the new NxE trustees an opportunity to work closely with the senior management team and get the chance to visit some of With YOU’s in-community services. With the growth of the new board, the existing NxE trustees wish to meet every 6 weeks initially to increase board accountability and integrate the new members well into the organisation. If you are passionate about helping support people in care and looking for a new challenge, we’d love to chat to you. You could be a first-time trustee or a old hand at the world of Non-Executive opportunities, we would value your contribution to With YOU.
Please get in contact with Kate Kennedy or Debbie Shields to discuss further on 0141 212 7555.
