Who are Trustees? What Do They Do?
DADLG Trustees come from diverse and varied backgrounds, each bringing with them a variety of expertise and skills. Their knowledge is based around Education, Health, Youth Provision and Management – most are Parents/Carers of young people with disabilities themselves.
Trustees work consistently throughout the year and attend regular meetings to ensure the smooth and efficient running of the group. Being a Trustee, can, on occasion be a difficult and time-consuming role and any potential new Trustees may have to consider this (not that we want to put you off). But it is also be a very rewarding one.
Trustees have overall responsibility for the group and they can direct the organisation to best meet the diverse and changing needs of its members. Trustees ensure that each year DADLG provides a service for many families and is able to offer them a varied programme of events and activities.
If you would like to find out more about becoming a Trustee, please contact us at the DADLG Office.
Please remember – you don’t need to have had any previous experience and never under-estimate the transferable skills you will have acquired – from whatever your background or profession. Life experience and a desire to contribute to your local community, is really valuable.
