Disability Equality Scotland

The Role

Board Members

Disability Equality Scotland is a national disabled people’s organisation. We are member led and we are also the umbrella body for the Access Panel Network in Scotland.  We have a vision to strengthen our Board.  We are seeking three dedicated individuals to join our Board of Directors.

A registered Scottish charity, our mission is to give all disabled people in Scotland a voice with trust, care and empathy, using what they hear to advocate for and enable change to improve lives.

The organisation has recently published a new 5 year Strategic Plan. This provides a clear vision of working towards Equality, Inclusion and Participation for disabled people in Scotland. We are dedicated to engaging closely with members and Access Panels to tackle a range of issues affecting disabled people. We are continuing to foster close relationships with key stakeholders to ensure the voices of disabled people are listened to and acted on.

One of our strategic aims is to provide, and take part in, opportunities to engage in discussions that bring about change. We want to increase awareness, knowledge and understanding of Equality, Access and Inclusion across Scotland.

We are seeking Directors to complement our current Board and with skills / knowledge to help meet our strategic plans. We are particularly interested in people with any of the following:

  • Lived experience of a disability

  • Leadership experience

  • Fundraising skills

  • Volunteer recruitment and retention strategy

  • Human Resources

  • Digital marketing

To carry out this role, you will require enthusiasm and commitment for the work of Disability Equality Scotland and will be a collaborator with a willingness and appetite to get involved with new activities.

Some governance experience, whether in the private, public, or third sectors, is desirable, although not essential and induction support will be provided.

We encourage applications from all sectors, reflecting our commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equality.
