There are three shifts, days/ afternoons/ nights, regular meetings daily and we have four main accountabilities to help us to maintain routines and prepare our boys for leaving us to manage independently. We have a real community here, so everything that we do fosters a sense of that, of belonging, of responsibility and purpose – from breakfast or lunches eaten together to enjoying a game of pool.

As a charity, we provide a genuinely warm atmosphere and we Project Workers work together on Events like Harry Potter Day, Super Hero Night, Sports Day, Treasure Hunts, Crafternoons, or Ultimate Frisbee.

Trustees

We are looking to appoint Trustees

The Trust Board is the governing body which promotes strategic thinking and planning by addressing compliance, prudence, caring and the identification of critical issues. By being a Trustee you can help us make a real difference to the lives of the young people we work with.

Our Quaker led Charitable Trust provides specialist interventions for young men (between the ages of 15 and 18 at point of referral) with a known history of harmful sexual behaviours.

We are an all year round residential children’s home and Independent Special School within a Therapeutic Community setting.

The key objective of the Trust is to reduce the risk of ex-Residents offending, and the promotion of their resilience for them to play their full part in contributing to society. Residents are referred to us by Local Authorities or as directed by the Court. Over an average of two years, Residents are encouraged to recognise and effectively reduce risks and threats. The aim is to assist them to learn how to maintain socially and legally acceptable standards of behaviour, so that they can resume independent living in the future.

Our results are validated as successful by a substantive longitudinal study over 12 years (www.glebehouse.org.uk).

In addition to the relevant statutory duties, each Trustee should be willing to use any specific skills knowledge or experience they have to help the Trust Board reach sound decisions. This may involve leading discussions, identifying key issues, providing advice and guidance on new initiatives and evaluating/offering advice on other areas in which they have particular expertise. There is an expectation that Trustees will complete the relevant mandatory training required due to the nature of our work. All Trustees are also Governors of our School.

This is a volunteer position, but reasonable expenses are covered. Board meetings are held bi-monthly and depending on relevant experience there may be opportunities to support specific sub-committees which would also have a time commitment.

The Board is always composed of at least 60% Quakers. We are looking for non-Quakers as well as Quaker Trustees. It is usual for Board appointments to last for three years in the first instance, but a further triennium might be helpful.

We welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and disabled candidates, as they are currently under-represented on the Board. We also welcome applications from LGBTQ+ candidates. We value the positive impact that difference has on our teams.

If you are interested in applying for this position or finding out further information please contact our Teresa Wilkinson on (01799) 584359 or email hr@glebehouse.org.uk
