ECHC is on the lookout for people to join its board of Directors.
East Cheshire Housing Consortium (ECHC) is looking for two new directors to join its board.
The organisation supports over 100 service users, by providing essential support services within the community. The homes are located across Macclesfield, Crewe and Congleton.
ECHC continues to grow and works closely with the community teams to develop and maintain support programmes across the region.
With further growth planned, the organisation is looking for two more trustees to help guide its direction and help it deliver on its strategic performance and wider business plan.
Brenda Wright, CEO, says, “Interested individuals need to have a broad background of business expertise in finances and/or the mental health sector so they can help us respond to the increasing demand of providing services to vulnerable people living in the local community.”
In this voluntary post, directors need to be available to attend a meeting every six weeks, as well as the occasional informal meeting.
The meetings are held at the ECHC offices in Macclesfield and give the senior management team a sounding board regarding the continued running of the business, new developments and initiatives that are being launched within the organisation.
Jim Bissett, chairman of ECHC, says “I have been involved with the ECHC board for 20 years and have been the Chair during this time. The services offered by ECHC make a significant difference to the lives of the service users in our supported housing and independent flats. Throughout my career in many different businesses, there have not been any as rewarding or satisfying as my involvement with East Cheshire Housing.
