Since Together was formed in 1879, we have believed that people with mental health issues have the right and the abilities to lead independent, fulfilling lives as part of their communities. We offer a wide variety of support services to help people deal with the personal and practical impacts of mental health issues, from one-to-one support in the community to supported accommodation.
The people who use our services are at the heart of everything we do – they influence and shape the support they receive from us and the way our services are run. We currently work with around 5,000 adults every month via 80 projects throughout England, but we aspire to reach many, many more across the nation.
Our charity has already made significant progress but there are still plenty of challenges ahead. Our aspiration is to continue to develop the infrastructure of the organisation – reaching out to more service users, growing our clinical health and accommodation services, increasing our income via new corporate partnerships, continuing to improve our support and mobilisation of volunteers, and to communicate effectively with all of our stakeholders.
With significant progress achieved, there are still challenges ahead and we’re now seeking two new Trustees to join our Board. In these crucial non-executive appointments, you will contribute through your own professional expertise and background and as a collegiate member of the team, ensure that we are well positioned to deliver our strategic priorities. We are interested in hearing from individuals from the private, public or voluntary sectors with broad experience gained in the specific fields of clinical health and housing; both of which are key strategic areas of development for our organisation going forwards.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a successful and growing organisation. Whatever your background, you must be motivated to champion our vision to support individuals with mental health issues to lead the most independent, fulfilling lives that they deserve.
