North Lincolnshire Learning Disability Partnership Board is looking for an Independent Professional Co-chair

This is an exciting opportunity to be an ambassador and champion for people with learning disabilities who live and work in North Lincolnshire.

The professional co-chair will also work with our two newly elected self advocate co-chairs to jointly lead the work of the partnership board.

The role of the Partnership Board is to: ‘give local people and the people that support them, a way of influencing strategic direction and service development and to ensure that local services reflect local need’.

The Learning Disability Partnership Board does not have formal decision making responsibilities for services. It does help to shape and influence the health and wellbeing agenda in the local area, particularly in relation to people with learning disabilities. It ensures that local commissioning plans in relation to learning disability services are in place and that they meet the needs of local people.

The Learning Disability Partnership Board is accountable to the Adults Partnership and the Health and Wellbeing Board. The partnership board is represented on both strategic forums via agreed elected lay members.

The successful candidate will have access to training, be able to gain new knowledge and have the chance to contribute to improving services for people with learning disabilities across North Lincolnshire.

All applications to be submitted to partnership.planning@northlincs.gov.uk.

IMPORTANT: All applications to North Lincolnshire on the contacts above, please. This is NOT a VANL post.

NB – The candidate should be independent from any key organisations or committees associated with the partnership board. Any potential conflicts of interest should be declared as part of the application process and will be addressed at interview and/or by the responsible manager.
