Hft (Home Farm Trust) is one of the countries leading charities that has been supporting people with learning disabilities 1962. Hft was founded by a group of families who passionately believed that with the right support their relatives who had learning disabilities, could live the best life possible. Today at Hft, they still hold that belief and their purpose is to ensure that they give the 2,600 people they support, either through residential care, supported living, daycare or domiciliary care, the best life possible.
Hft are seeking to recruit a new Trustee to their Council and are looking for Trustees who want to actively engage in guiding the success and future direction of Hft. Hft are interested in recruiting two new Trustees with experience in the following specialisms:
- Clinical professional preferably in Learning Disability: ideally with a national reputation and capable of leading policy discussions, and or
- Knowledge of social care/commissioning: forward looking and understanding the changing social care and commissioning environment and, ideally, how to influence it.
- A generalist who has either operated in-house as a senior lawyer or as an advisor to large scale organisations (Hft has access to particular expertise, so about guidance rather than advice) e.g. a corporate lawyer with broad legal experience.
- Experience in such areas as human rights and equality, employment law, the Care Act and outcome based contracts would be desirable. Possibly some experience in high level strategic advice on property management.
