Board of Trustee Recruitment
Seeking New Trustees with specific experience/skills
The Board of Trustees at Gordon Moody Association (GMA) have recently undergone a period of change and now is an exciting time to become part of a unique charity providing much needed support to those in recovery from gambling addiction.
Gordon Moody Association has almost 50 years' experience of providing specialised support and treatment to pathological gamblers. We have developed residential treatment and other interventions that are focused purely on gambling related harm which address the extremes of associated behaviours. We provide residential therapeutic care (Tier 4) with associated relapse prevention housing and outreach support. Our on-line support service, Gambling Therapy supports problem gamblers internationally supported by our Gambling Therapy App. We also provide a Mixed Model of Care (MMOC) retreat programme for women and men, which provides 12 weekly therapy sessions combined with two short stay residential retreat workshops.
The Board of GMA are now seeking to appoint new Trustees and we have opportunities for people with the following experience:
• Business and risk management
• Financial management and control
• Housing Development/Management
As a Trustee, you must be able to make a commitment to the Charity, its purpose and values to ensure that it is effectively managed in line with its core values and in line with Charity Commission rules and regulations. You will need to have strategic vision, independent judgement and an ability to think creatively. Our Board of Trustees meet every other month and new Trustees will be invited to be part of one of the Board sub-committees which generally meet quarterly. This is a non-remunerated role but reasonable travel expenses for board meetings will be reimbursed along with a full induction and training programme. Previous board experience is not essential to these roles at this time.
If you would like to make a serious contribution to those addicted to gambling, please contact Adele Duncan, Chief Executive, at [email protected] to arrange to discuss the role further.
