Trustee

TRUSTEE VACANCIES!

MATRIX Neurological is an innovative lived experience-led
charity that supports children and young people who are living with an acquired
brain injury; and provides practical and emotional support to their
families. We deliver a range of services
under three workstreams: Case Management, Children and Young People Support and
Family Support. We employ two staff and
have several volunteers.

The Board is looking to recruit 2-3 additional
Trustees to assist with the management and governance of the charity. Our Board comprises both parents and
professionals.

Parents

Trustees have an important role to play, as it is imperative that real life
lived experiences and views are represented.
We would therefore like to hear from any parents of brain injured
children who may be interested in becoming a Parent Trustee. This is a
great way to make increase your skills, make friends and use your own experiences
to help improve the lives of others.

We are also interested in potential volunteers from
professional backgrounds; in particular from those qualified in any of the
following professions:

·

It is not essential that
you have any lived experience of childhood and adolescent acquired brain
injury; but it would be an advantage.
