Over the last fifteen years our charity has grown from a project with one single paid worker into an organisation employing 14 staff and with 20+ volunteers. To help us grow we need experienced members of the public to join our Executive Committee; we need people who can help direct IANE towards its mission statement and ensure the organisation is effectively managed.

IANE values diversity and welcomes any member of the public who is interested in furthering the aims of IANE to consider joining our board. It is important that a trustee is able to devote the necessary time, have strategic vision, an understanding of advocacy, an ability to think creatively and willingness to speak their mind.

Board meetings are held every two months at the IANE office, North Shields, usually on a Tuesday evening between 6.00pm and 8.30pm.


We are particularly keen to recruit members of the local community in North Tyneside who have skills and experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • People with real life experiences of physical disability, learning disability, mental health issues
  • People from Black and Minority Ethnic communities and vulnerable older people
  • Expertise in marketing, PR or Event Management
  • Qualified accountant with experience of the voluntary and community sector
  • HR policy and development skills are desirable but not essential as full induction and training will be provided

  • Health and Safety Policy
