Northampton Hope Centre is seeking a new Chair to support the charities mission over the next five to six years
The board and senior staff are happy to consider candidates from a broad range of backgrounds and are looking for someone preferably with a combination of both private sector (commercial) and public sector (charity services/health sector) experience (not necessarily homelessness) who is willing to help:
a) Continue to deliver the services and expertise of the long established and highly regarded NHC day centre in Northampton
b) Continue to build the training and work experience opportunities currently made available to clients of NHC
c) Continue to build the social enterprise activities in Hope Enterprises (HE)
d) Build and extend NHC services into new aspects of support for clients in need of mental health services and/or help to deal with substance misuse issues
e) Increase NHC access to housing provision for its clients
f) Continue to support NHC’s work in partnerships with other voluntary sector agencies, including in the homelessness sector, in order to tackle all aspects of homelessness in the Northampton area of the UK.
We are looking for a Chair who supports the desire of the current board and senior staff to build NHC’s range of services without relying on central or local government funding or service provision.
