CFSE looking for board members

CFSE is a social enterprise set up in Cambridge to provide evidence-based intervention in schools for children and young people experiencing mild or emerging mental difficulties. The board is made up of a mix of clinical professionals and people with experience in business and the community. It supervises the work of the enterprise ensuring excellent delivery and maintaining professional and ethical standards.  We are looking to expand the board with one new non-executive board director. Ideally, we are seeking someone with general interest in the field of children's mental wellbeing who can bring additional business expertise. We are particularly interested in a financial, accounting or legal background as we feel that this would complement the other board members.
