Chairman of the Board of Trustees (CSVA)

← Back to search results

Sight for Surrey, based in Fetcham, near Leatherhead, is an ambitious charity offering a lifetime of support to people who are blind or partially sighted, Deaf, deafblind or hard of hearing.  Our mission is to support people to overcome their day-to-day challenges, achieve their potential and lead an independent life. 

We are celebrating our centenary year having been established in 1922 to support people who were blind, often as a result of fighting in the First World War. Today we support more than 8,000 people across the County of Surrey and operate significant sensory contracts as strategic partners of Surrey County Council.


What skills do I need?

The skills we need are set out in the role profile, but we are seeking a Chairman with leadership and management skills who can use their experience of developing or running an organisation, and some knowledge of the voluntary sector, to work with the Board and Chief Executive to take Sight for Surrey into its second century as a confident and growing organisation.

Sight for Surrey is user-led, and we would expect our new Chairman to either have lived experience of sensory loss, or of supporting people with sensory loss.  This is a volunteer role. 

Closing date for completed applications: 7th July 2022
