Bexley Snap has a vision to enable disabled children, young people, and their families to lead full and fulfilling lives.

Our Trustees ensure that Bexley Snap fulfils its duty to our beneficiaries through delivery of our vision, mission, and values.

We need you to commit to a minimum of 8 hours a month in this role. The Board attends a bi-monthly evening meeting lasting between 2 – 3 hours, with one longer strategy half-day per year.

• design ways to gather feedback and evaluate the quality of our activities
• improve opportunities for children, young people and their families to contribute to Snap management and governance

You should ideally have an interest in opportunities for disabled young people and a passion for broadening engagement in our local area. We want our Board to reflect the diversity of our families and the many different communities which live and work in Bexley.

All candidates should express:
• willingness to devote the necessary time and effort.
