Opportunities at Likewise

Trustees (voluntary role)

We are currently recruiting new Trustees to act as critical friends, being part of a community that is striving to influence the social care sector. Our current Trustees have done a fantastic job of supporting the development of our approach, and now this is in place they have agreed a next step is needed so that our values reach into every level of the organisation. As such, we are looking to open up the way our Board is run, creating a community of learners and influencers who can help us in our growth, contribute to our learning and maximise our potential.
