*Closes 27th May*

The Centre for Health and Wellbeing is seeking to enhance the skills and experience of its Board of Trustees through recruiting additional members to the Board.

The Centre for Health and Wellbeing, now in its 25th year of service to the community, engages with self-employed Complementary Therapists to provide a wide range of therapies to those affected by poor physical and/or mental wellbeing.  Clients include victims and survivors of the conflict, carers and others in the community coping with poor mental health.  The Centre also engages with Tutors to deliver classes on for example: Mindfulness, Stress Management and on the Benefits Of Aromatherapy Oils. 

The Centre is based at 689 Upper Springfield Road, Belfast, BT12 7FP and provides annually, approximately, 2900 therapy sessions benefitting up to 600 individuals.

The Centre receives funding from the Victims and Survivors Service under the Victim Support Programme for Victims and Survivors of the Northern Ireland Troubles/Conflict.  The Centre is also in receipt of funding from Department for Communities Neighbourhood Renewal Investment Fund and the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust.  The Centre will also generate income from the provision of outreach services to the business, voluntary and community sectors.

There are currently 5 Trustees on the Board a number we would like to increase.  The skill set identified is expertise/experience in:

  • Income Generation/Business Development
  • Marketing and Communications;
  • Finance
  • Governance
  • Counselling/Clinical expertise
  • Legal expertise

Trustees meet approximately every 6 weeks with the meeting having a maximum duration of 1.5 hours.
