Avenues is a group of charities that supports people with the most complex needs to live the best life possible.  Welmede is one of subsidiaries and are a person centred housing and support organisation who specialise in learning disabilities. We have just agreed our new three year strategic plan and are looking for trustees with new skills to help support the delivery of that plan.

We are also looking for a new Chair.  The ideal candidate for this position will have previous chair experience along with experience of either social housing and development or relevant HR experience at both operational and strategic levels.  Any candidate applying for the Chair position will become an Avenues Group board trustee and attend their meetings in Kent in addition to the Welmede meetings which are based in Surrey.
