Become a Mirus Trustee 

Mirus are currently recruiting for new Trustees to join their Board and would love to speak to anyone who might be interested.  

 

About Mirus 

At Mirus we are dedicated to supporting individuals with learning disabilities, autism, mental health conditions and complex needs in a person-centred manner, through shared support, independent living and flexible community support. 

 

Our Board of Trustees is ultimately responsible for our Governance as a charity. The board sets the strategic direction that enables us to achieve our vision; everything we do is focused on enabling the people we support to live happy, healthy and fulfilled lives. 

 

Mirus already has Trustees from a variety of backgrounds and is keen to welcome people who have experience and skills within Finance, IT & Digital, Business Development, Public Affairs, and Learning and Development, especially within the social care sector. 

 

We believe a diverse Board reflects the diverse community we serve.  Mirus welcome input from people with personal experience of diverse disabilities, a family member with a disability, or personal experience within the disability community or care sector. By actively building a diverse Board we can make sure that the people supported by Mirus continue to live their best possible lives.

 

Most importantly, we are looking for people who share our values, are creative and imaginative, and want to play a key role in developing Mirus’ future.

 

Roz has been a Trustee at Mirus since 2019. She is a former social worker, now retired, with a great passion for ensuring people we support live happy and fulfilled lives. Roz particularly loves to engage with the people we support and see the direct impact our person-centred approach has. Roz is also a big advocate for staff and volunteers, and feels it is important their values and commitment are recognised as part of the work we do.

 

 

Please note that Trustee roles are entirely voluntary.  

 

As a Mirus Trustee, you are required to: 

  • Attend four Board meetings each year. 
  • Attend our Annual General Meeting (AGM) once a year 
  • Consider joining one of our three committees that meet four times a year (optional) 
  • Participate in Board Development & Away Days 
  • Engage directly with both the staff and people we support, either by attending Mirus events or visiting people in their homes. We value your time and it’s up to you how involved you would like to be. 

  

Some of the legal duties and responsibilities that come with being a Trustee include: 

  • Ensuring that Mirus complies with the law and any other relevant legislation or regulatory requirements
  • Promoting the vision, purpose, values and objectives of Mirus
  • Contributing to setting the strategic direction of Mirus

As a Trustee, you will receive:
