Title Trustee Board Member
Role Information

Lydney Dial-A-Ride is a safe and friendly door-to-door transport service for those people who do not have their own transport and are unable to use public transport. The charity has been established for over 30 years. It carries passengers between Lydney, Coleford, Cinderford and the surrounding local areas in the Forest of Dean. It operates a fleet of sixteen fully accessible minibuses, capable of carrying wheelchair passengers and other seated passengers. It has a volunteer based car service, two charity shops, runs rural bus services and Home to School contracts.

The charity is now seeking to appoint two new Trustees to their Board. The Board members are from a range of backgrounds and have a variety of skills. To complement the current Board, the two new Trustees could have experience of running organisations, planning strategic direction, personnel and business development and a keen interest in the charity sector.

Trustees are expected to attend monthly Board meetings and there may be occasional ad hoc committee meetings or events. It is expected that Trustees maintain regular contact with the Charity Manager and other Board members.

If you would relish this challenge and share in the Board’s desire to continue to build on Lydney Dial a Ride’s strengths in these ever-changing times, then we would be delighted to hear from you.

We aim to achieve greater diversity within our Board of Trustees and welcome applications from all members of the local community.

Please note these positions are voluntary.
