seescape is seeking new trustees to help the charity as we grow and develop

Based in in Kirkcaldy, Fife, seescape is a well-established charity working to improve the independence and quality of life of those who have sight impairment, their families and carers. seescape believes that it is important to raise awareness of the needs of sight impaired people by changing attitudes and breaking down the barriers that prevent people living with sight impairment being full and active members of society.

seescape provides a diverse range of activities and support to its beneficiaries. This is an exciting opportunity to get involved with the charity as it seeks to grow and develop.

The role may appeal to people with a background and skills in one or more of the following areas: eye health, business planning and development, fundraising, HR, IT, charity governance or marketing.

seescape would like to appoint trustees to complement the current board in its role as a governing body: setting strategy and ensuring exemplary governance and fiscal control. Ideally the candidate would be someone with an understanding of charities and the voluntary sector. Most importantly they will have some strategic expertise and understanding of good governance.

The charity is keen to bring additional skills to its board, however, seescape is keen to attract applicants from a diverse audience so other skills will also be welcomed.

Board meetings are held every 6 weeks and these are currently being held virtually by Zoom.

If you would like to find out more, please contact Carl Hodson, CEO, by email carl.hodson@seescape.org.uk or call 01592 644979.
