Our Vision: Helplink Mental Health’s vision is to be Ireland’s leading provider of accessible mental health services locally (West of Ireland), nationally and internationally. We aim to achieve this vision through partnership with other organisations and by providing our services accessibly through the utilisation of traditional face-to-face service provision structures in the West of Ireland, coupled with online technologies for service provision nationally and internationally..

Helplink's Board of trustees is seeking a Board Member with Law expertise to fill a vacancy and join their Board (currently six trustees with experience in: Business, Finance, HR, Marketing, Strategy, Health).

The successful candidate will ideally have experience and an expertise with regard to best practice in Law ideally but not necessary in the not for profit sector.

The Governance subcommittee aims to meet at least once between each meeting of the governing body.

Previous board experience is a plus, but motivation and engagement toward the charity best interest is essential.
