Chair of Trustees
Trustees attend 4 meetings per year with a commitment of at least 12 months.
Sen Talk - is a dynamic local charity dedicated to supporting children and young people with high functioning autism and attention deficit disorder living in South London. The organisation aims to support the whole family, providing training and education for parents and carers, as well as pastoral care and accessible drop-in support sessions in a range of therapeutic areas. Sen Talk also works to advocate for young individuals living with ASD or ADHD diagnosis, especially those attending mainstream education, and those not accessing sufficient support. The charity looks to empower individuals but also to raise awareness around higher functioning disabilities, which are often misunderstood.
Sen Talk is currently looking for a motivated Chairperson to manage its board, oversee its strategic planning and assist in regulating the charity as it grows. Joining SenTalk during this time of transition will give the chosen chair an opportunity to support us registering as a charity, and steering the future of the organisation with the aim of it developing into a major support facility within the borough.
The Chair should be an effective communicator with excellent time management, experience in the charity sector or with community work and a willingness to work as an active and vocal part of the trustee board. Someone with a knowledge of Battersea/Wandsworh and of SEND/Autism/ADHD and a dedication to supporting families would be ideal.
