This is an exciting time for South Wilts Mencap and to ensure we are fit for the future, we have restructured our organisation. We want to continue our work in making a real difference to the lives of people in Salisbury and South Wilts with learning disabilities. In order to do this, we are looking to appoint a Chair along with other new trustees to help us lead from the front.
In the role of Chair, we are looking for someone who is a strong leader with previous corporate experience. All trustees will make a real difference to the lives of our members as well as gain new skills for their professional development. Due to the nature of the charity’s activity’s base, it would be preferred if applicants work and/or live in Salisbury or the surrounding area.
We have a number of paid contractors to provide services to SWM, but ultimately, we have a core of dedicated volunteers. Our range of services are offered to five year olds through to adults and they include clubs, activities and a holiday scheme. We also provide support for families and carers by way of signposting. We work with a range of organisations including Royal Mencap Society, Wiltshire Council, Wiltshire Parent Carer Council, Salisbury City Council, New Art Centre, La Folia, Exeter House School and Wiltshire Creative.
