We want to recruit 6 Disabled Trustees
Camden Disability Action (CDA) is a user-led organisation which aims to promote the equality of Disabled people living, working, volunteering and studying in Camden. It provides services, activities and support to Disabled people in the borough, and also to a broad range of organisations in relation to Disability and inclusion. CDA is a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO) currenty governed by a Board of 5 Trustees. It was established by and for Disabled people as an independent charity in 2015.
CDA is a pan-disability organisation, and as such it is the only Disability organisation in the borough that is open to all people with any impairment, health condition or difference. It welcomes as members all adult Disabled adults regardless of their background or impairment, as well as informal carers who are supporting Disabled people living in the borough. CDA is therefore the user-led community organisation in Camden that represents the interests of all Disabled people in the borough.
Being a Trustee is unpaid role. To carry out the duties and things a Trustee needs you will need to take part in about 5 Board meetings each year which will take about 20 hours of your time each year.CDA Trustee Application Details from Colin - first table
