We’re recruiting board members!

Are you interested in supporting the work of CHAI?

Do you have the passion and commitment to making a meaningful difference to disadvantaged and vulnerable individuals and families living with or facing hardship in the communities we live in? If so, we’d LOVE to hear from you!

CHAI is expanding our Board of Directors to help us achieve our key goals and we are keen to strengthen our Board in several areas. We need people who have an interest in supporting our work and the desire to make a difference. Prior Board experience is not essential and training can be provided.

We would especially like to hear from you if you have experience in the following areas: –
• Lived Experience (people who have firsthand experience of disadvantage or hardship)
• HR
• A genuine interest in supporting disadvantaged people and families
• Fundraising Experience

As a Board member you will play an integral role in helping to shape the work we do at CHAI.
Working alongside other Board members you will help formulate strategies and policies to guide and support the work we do and the CHAI Staff Team.

This is a great time to join CHAI, as well as making a positive difference to people’s lives you will grow personally and professionally too!  Do you have the passion, expertise or lived experience to help us achieve our goals?
