Since 1987 St Peter’s House (SPH) has been delivering high quality support services for people living with HIV and those around them in Surrey and West Sussex. Its services are well-respected and, as a small charity, it has shown remarkable resilience in withstanding the challenges in the changing environment. However, the long-term prognosis for people living with HIV has changed dramatically during this time, along with the type of service delivery and funding mechanisms to support prevention and care.
SPH needs to be more strategic, agile and responsive to these changes if it is to survive and this year staff and trustees undertook a strategic review of the organisation and have developed a three year strategic plan, aimed at growing SPH's services locally, aiming to better meet the needs of those living with HIV and putting more of a focus on prevention.
This is an exciting time to join SPH as Chair, with a passionate and committed team of staff and trustees. We are looking to appoint a Chair who shares our passion and commitment, and who can help take SPH to the next stage in its development, reaching out to more people living with HIV and those around them.
You should possess tact and diplomacy, with the ability to persuade and influence. You will use your skills, experience and knowledge to provide strategic direction and support to the St Peters House senior management team, ensuring effective governance of the charity.
To apply, please send your CV and a written statement of why you would like to join our board to Sue Lea, trustee. You will be invited to an informal open evening w/c 9th November before shortlisting takes place. Interviews will be held w/c 16th November.
