A Birmingham charity is marking National Trustees Week by appealing for people from the local business community to join its Board of Trustees as it develops its work supporting families affected by childhood liver disease throughout the UK.
For almost 40 years, Children’s Liver Disease Foundation (CLDF) has played a pivotal role in advancing understanding of the causes, diagnosis and treatments of childhood liver disease. The charity has also established unique research, education, patient and family support programmes throughout the UK, providing vital help to those with a lifelong condition for which there is still no cure.
“We have made great strides forward, but the fact remains that, every week in the UK, 20 children are diagnosed with a liver disease and there is much still to be done” said Chief Executive, Alison Taylor.
“Our trustees help provide strategic direction for the charity and ensure that all appropriate financial, legal and governance checks and balances are in place. Now we have an opportunity for new trustees to join our board and, as a Birmingham based charity, we would love to welcome some of the talent we have on our doorstep.
“We are particularly seeking candidates with the skills experience and enthusiasm to help diversify our income and assist us in promoting our services across the city and throughout the UK.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity to use personal skills and experience to change people’s lives as part of a thriving charity in a developing landscape.”
Closing date for expressions of interest is 9am on Monday 17th December.
