• Experience and knowledge at local and national Government level
• Extensive governance experience in theory and practice
• Commercial acumen, along with excellent communication & PR skills
• The time to allow on average up to one day per week to the role
The Trust has assisted over 160 households since it began through a number of programmes, and now operates with Trust gross funds in excess of $27m. But the evidence of housing stress is also growing and the Trust has set the bold goal of assisting 1000 households within the next 10 years. After 2 very successful years, our current Chair is leaving the District.
