***THIS JOB VACANCY HAS NOW CLOSED***
FWP is seeking to appoint a new Chair of Trustees to work in partnership with the CEO, who will have a particular interest in the welfare of LGBT+ veterans, serving personnel and families.
Established in January 2020 and registered with the Charity Commission of England and Wales in October 2020, FWP is the UK’s lived-experience LGBT+ military charity and we particularly support those affected by the ‘gay ban’.
FWP has 11 Trustees who bring a wide range of talents to our team. In partnership with FWPs Executive, our Board of Trustees provides leadership and governance to our small but high-profile military LGBT+ charity. Our award-winning work is delivered across the UK by a dedicated team of Veterans Community Workers led by Managers based in England, Scotland and Wales. We also have a Pride in Veterans Standard Manager, making a total of 12 salaried staff.
Trustee meetings are held at least 4 times per year and there are additional meetings of our 2 sub committees, which are the Fundraising & Finance Committee and the People & Culture Committee. In order to contribute to the decision-making process, Trustees are encouraged to attend events and training sessions and to join sub-committees in order to gain a clearer understanding of the charity’s work.
As FWP brings to its culmination our campaign for restorative justice for LGBT+ veterans and those who lost careers because they were perceived to be gay, we are seeking a Chair who is passionate and motivated. We need an individual with excellent leadership skills, who can commit the time to the next stage of our journey beyond our campaign and towards enabling the delivery phase of reparations and defining our future purpose.
