Derbyshire Youth Development Board Members

The Derbyshire Youth Development Board is a group of 16-24 year olds with lived experience of learning disabilities and/or autism spectrum conditions, meeting every 4-6 weeks, to discuss subjects such as education and support systems and hopefully affect positive change, with both young people and parents/carers welcome. The meetings will take place in Chesterfield office, and we are happy to provide transport to and from if needed.

  • You will have group discussions focusing on education and employment, what works and what does not. Your lived experience will help us to identify problems in the system that you would like us to solve. The meetings will also be an opportunity for you to get to know fellow young people with similar values and goals and improve your confidence with socialising and group discussions.
  • You will all fill out a Skills Portfolio over the course of the Board meetings. This will be a personal document used to record certificates, personal development plans, reflective activities, testimonials and references, badges, and more. This is a useful diary you can take to future employers to show off the skills you have developed and experiences you have been involved in.

For more information you can download the flyer or watch a YouTube video about the Board. For any other queries, email

Citizens Advice Mid Mercia Board Members

Citizens Advice Mid Mercia is a charity that provides information, advice, support and training on a wide range of subjects such as debt, consumer services, energy, family, work, housing, health, digital skills and homelessness. Our Governing Body is a Board consisting of Trustees who provide independent judgement and oversight and are responsible for providing the strategic direction of our organisation.

Trustees play an essential role in ensuring that the charity runs smoothly and to make sure that:

  • The services we offer are high quality
  • Our clients’ experiences are used to campaign for changes in policies or services locally and nationally
  • Resources are secured to meet current and new demands and that all funds are used responsibly
  • Recruitment and selection processes for staff and volunteers are fair, and we are representative of the local community
  • Training and support are available for staff and volunteers
  • Local partner organisations and funders are aware of the charity and its services

Evening Board Trustee meetings are held approximately every 12 weeks. We also hold sub-committees every 12 weeks. The total time commitment for a Trustee is at least 1 day per month; induction and training are provided, as is support from an experienced and knowledgeable Trustee and staff team. Trustees are not paid, but expenses are covered. A DBS (criminal records check) will be required.

  • Will require references
  • Own computer or secure access to one
  • Long term commitment

If you have any questions or wish to discuss the role, please email Claire Faulkner, Head of Compliance & Central Support at
or visit our company website.
