Do you have personal experience of working with, or caring for, people with Learning Disabilities?

Scotts Project Trust, based in Tonbridge, Kent, supports and cares for adults with learning disabilities by delivering excellent services in a friendly, nurturing environment where people gain the confidence and skills to lead fulfilled, happy and independent lives. 

The charity operates through three interlinked services:

  • St Peter’s Row, our residential care home
  • Our two local independent living houses - Oaks and Willows - each housing four people and with a flat for one person
  • Our on-site Day Services Centre, which runs courses designed to develop life-skills and confidence.

The Trustee Board plays a vital role in the overall governance and strategic direction of the charity, helping the organisation to continue delivering and developing its different projects. 

We are seeking to appoint a new Trustee with skills and experience in the following areas:

  • Personal or academic Learning Disability experience; and
  • Non-Executive Director, Trustee or Senior Management experience.

We would prefer our Trustee to be local to, or willing to come to, Tonbridge at least once a month and would ask for a time commitment of around 4 hours per week on average. The Trustee Board meets every other month.

We are very grateful to all our Trustees who offer their time and experience on a voluntary basis.
