We’re recruiting new trustees. Does your passion match ours?
We’re looking for people who are keen to use their skills and experience, whether professional or personal, to make sure BCOP can continue to support older people for generations to come. We’re particularly interested to hear from you if have direct experience of the issues facing our service users. No prior experience of sitting on a Board is necessary as we offer a full induction and training. You do need to have the time to fully participate as a Board Member – this equates to about 1 day a month.
Our Pioneering Spirit
BCOP has been a pioneer in caring for older people since its foundation over 70 years ago – developing the first ‘meals-on-wheels’ scheme and being the first to offer organised daytrips and holidays to older people. More recently, we have been leading the way in providing Animal Assisted Therapy to our care home residents through our on-site pet farms, and sensory stimulation through ‘Sensory Street’ – an on-site replica post-war high street, which was featured on the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme earlier this year. We strive to ensure our services adapt to meet the changing needs of older people and society.
We offer not only nursing care, with dementia provision, in our three care homes, but also independent and supported housing and additional services such as welfare guidance and a handyperson scheme.
If you have skills and experience in any of the following areas, and drive to make a difference, we encourage you to apply:
- Healthcare settings & commissioning
- Business development & strategy
- Communications/ fundraising
- Digital/ technology
- Social housing
This position is not remunerated but reasonable expenses (e.g.travel) will be paid
