About Disability Snowsport UK (DSUK):
Disability Snowsport UK’s vision is of mountains and ski slopes free from barriers, where disabled people can learn and take part alongside family, friends and peers. Mission:
To make snowsport accessible for everyone; regardless of disability, injury or experience. We work to remove the barriers to taking part so that disabled children and adults, and their families can enjoy the freedom, independence and the physical and wellbeing benefits of skiing and snowboarding, and related activities. We do this by:
❄️Providing expert adaptive teaching for individuals, families and groups across the UK
❄️Providing holidays and activities in the UK and worldwide
❄️Providing social and recreational skiing groups
❄️Working with governing bodies, training organisations and partners to widen access, increase awareness and share knowledge
The role of the Trustee is to ensure the activities of the charity support its purpose and serve the interests of its beneficiaries.
Trustees provide strategic guidance, governance and oversight of management, ensuring the organisation is accountable and acting as a ‘critical friend’ to the CEO. They are there to protect the charities assets both physical and reputational. They make sure resources are managed responsibly and that the charity is run sustainably.
Currently an active board of 12, we are forward planning for routine board member rotation in 2023 and 2024. To complement our existing board and support our strategic direction, we are looking for up to four additional trustees to bring knowledge, skills and experience in one or more of the following areas
❄️Strategic Organisational Development / HR
❄️Winter sport or Outdoor Industry
