Head Office - London N17
Voluntary Position


We are recruiting for up to three new Voluntary Board members for our charity

based in London N17

Since 1976 Outward have been providing innovative housing, support and care solutions to people in need. Whether we are providing care and support in partnership with local authorities or supporting people via direct payments, our aim is always for the individual to determine what kind of support we offer. Our focus is on enabling people to have greater choice, independence and control over how they live their lives. We are part of the Newlon Group, we manage supported housing for over 500 people and work across 10 London Boroughs providing services to a wide range of people including people on the Autistic Spectrum and people with learning disabilities.

We are looking for high-calibre individuals who can demonstrate a clear understanding of the challenges we and our customers face, and who are genuinely passionate about the positive impact that good social care can make.  Perhaps you already have experience as a Trustee and want a new challenge, or perhaps you have relevant skills and are looking for your first opportunity to join a Board and be involved in a large and successful charity.

We want our Board to reflect the diversity of the communities we serve and welcome applicants from all parts of the community.

We are now strategically looking to strengthen our Board in the following specific areas;

  1. IT, systems and communications – 2020 saw Outward like many others, successfully make changes to  work and communicate in the new Covid world. We now want to strengthen our Board with someone able to bring further knowledge and expertise to take this work onto the next stage.
  2. Experience and knowledge in managing and/or developing care and support services, particualrly for people who have high care and support needs.
  3. Fund Raising – Outward in the last year has been re-invigorating our efforts to raise funds to support key areas of our charitable activities, in particularly to support our activity holiday breaks for people with learning disabilities and our volunteer community work.
