Community Lives Consortium logoCommunity Lives Consortium (CLC) are a non-profit making organisation that supports disabled people to live the lives that they choose in in South West Wales.

Established in 1989, they currently support about 260 people who live active and successful lives at home and in the communities that they are part of.

Many of the people they support and their family members are legal members of their organisation, and play formal roles on their Board and its governance mechanisms.

The Care Inspectorate Wales said in 2019 that Community Lives Consortium promote ‘a strong person centered ethos in order to genuinely empower people’.

They are looking for 4 trustees to join their Board, with the following areas of expertise and experience:

  • Finance & Accounting
  • Health and Safety practice
  • Business Development
  • Social Enterprise

CLC Board members help the organisation to continually improve both as a support organisation and as a robust business that must function very efficiently in this very demanding public service environment.

They’re looking for trustee’s who are passionate about making this happen, who will be willing to work closely with people involved in their governance processes and help their Senior team to restlessly find routes for continuous improvement. 

They seek Trustees with the skills to:

  • Support and scrutinise their financial and business processes
  • Oversee health and safety management processes and ensure they are an integral part of the organisation’s culture, values, and performance standards
  • Strengthen CLCs capacity for public sector tendering
  • Build their responsiveness for the creation of social enterprise that can meet the needs of the people they serve

The Board meets monthly on Tuesday afternoons, sub-groups are quarterly, and papers for all groups are supplied prior to meetings. Trustee’s also meet with Senior Managers on occasion.

The Board would be open would be open to exploring different arrangements for meeting to support new Trustee’s to become involved. Travel and other reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.
