Who we are:

The Grace Eyre Foundation is a charity based in Brighton & Hove and the wider Sussex community that has been working with people with Learning Disabilities and autistic people since 1898. Our mission is to work towards being led by people with Learning Disabilities and autistic people to deliver high-quality housing, support and activities in their local communities. The people we support tell us that they want “good support from kind and friendly people” – so that is what we are looking for!

Introduction to the role:

Grace Eyre is recruiting a trustee with lived experience to broaden skills and representation on our board. We are committed to having an inclusive and diverse Board and to be led by people with learning disabilities and/or autistic people so ensuring user-led activity at this level is paramount to our values.


Brief outline of the role:

Our Board advises so we can deliver projects and services in our community including Active Lives, Housing, Shared Lives, Choices, Events, Travel, Employment and Our Voices (Ambassadors).

We are particularly looking for people with lived experience of a learning disability and/or autism to expand our Board representation. Additional key professional expertise would further broaden the skills of our current board.

We welcome applicants from the black and Asian minority ethnic communities who are underrepresented on the Board. We value diverse perspectives from the widest possible range of backgrounds
