Independent Lives

Register your Interest

Independent Lives is looking to grow our Board and are now recruiting people with experience and passion in the following areas: lived experience of disability, health & social care, HR and finance.

We also always want to hear from people with lived experience, so if you have support needs or are a carer do get in touch.

This is your opportunity to work alongside a vibrant and diverse group of trustees and be an integral part of the team.

If you would like to make a real difference to a local charity supporting local disabled people to live independently, then we would love to hear from you.


If you have lived experience of disability and/or have a background in health & social care, HR or legal we would love to hear from you.


You will have strategic input in the direction of a dynamic charity. Your time will directly benefit disabled people, and people with long term health conditions, of all ages. You will learn new skills, be supported by other board members and the chief executive, and help shape an award-winning charity.

Practical Considerations

We are based in Worthing and you would need to commit to 4-6 meetings per year, which are held during the day and in our office or online via Microsoft Teams. 

When do I need to be available?

Details The board and subcommittee meeting dates are set at the start of each year, arranged when everyone can attend, currently on tuesday and thursday afternoons.
