Surrey Coalition of Disabled People and Surrey Independent Living Council are both looking for new Board Directors. Board Directors provide strategic leadership to the organisation, and challenge to the executive team, to achieve the best result for Disabled people in Surrey. Board Directors are expected to contribute their expertise at board meetings and can also choose to become active members of a sub-committee. Both organisations are specifically looking for those with skills and experience in communications, fundraising, legal, marketing, strategic leadership, or volunteer management. Lived experience as a disabled person, or as a carer for a disabled person, is very much an advantage.
The aim of the Surrey Coalition is to campaign and promote the rights of disabled people to have equality of opportunity and to live independently.
