Bringing Change to the Board in the North East Applications Now Open!

Our Leaders with Lived Experience Team will be delivering their 'Bringing Change to the Board' Lottery funded project and training course to successful candidates.



Due to the current Coronavirus situation we are aware that you will all have more pressing concerns than applying for the ‘Bringing Change to the Board’ Project.  
We are therefore extending the application date to 31st May.  This will hopefully give you more time to consider how the current situation has impacted on you and what the ‘Bringing Change to the Board’  opportunity means for you now. 
We intend to still run the project just as soon as it is safe to do so. The dates identified to deliver the training course will no longer be possible.  We will advise of new dates in the autumn.
Apologies to those of you who have already connected with us regarding this opportunity, as you will appreciate the delay is out of our control.
If any organisation would like to speak to us about the project or indeed if there is something that is preventing you from applying please do speak to us.  We are happy to answer any questions you may have and will do our best to resolve any problems.
