We are currently seeking to recruit multiple experienced individuals to join our board of Trustees to assist in setting the direction of the Charitable Foundation.
Fletchers Foundation was created by the Fletchers Group, a trading name of Fletchers Solicitors, to help individuals and their families thrive after a serious injury or accident.
Fletchers Group supports its clients through the legal process that arises following a serious personal injury or accident. But there are many enquires that do not have a valid legal resolution – and it is these individuals The Foundation aims to support.
Fletchers Foundation launched in January 2023 and already provides a much-needed lifeline for many people who may be out of other options.
Our objective is to enable as many people as possible to genuinely thrive following a life-changing injury.
For those left with a disability or cognitive behavioural needs, Fletchers Foundation will empower them to live their lives to the fullest.
What will you be doing?
The Board of Trustees are responsible for the strategic direction, governance, core policies, fiscal oversight, legal compliance, and general performance of the charity to meet its Charitable Purposes.
In the role as a Trustee, you would play your part in the above as well as being expected to contribute towards the general management of the charity. That may involve decision making at Trustee meetings, ideas for new initiatives to progress the charity, supporting with grant applications and helping out at events.
The Board holds quarterly evening meetings, together with the Director of the Foundation.
Trustees will be offered an initial induction and a typical time commitment equates to c.2 hours per month.
Being a trustee is a voluntary role, but we do pay reasonable travel and subsistence expenses.
