Get Out More is a social enterprise on a mission to help people engage with nature to feel better in mind and body. We are seeking a committed Chair of the Board who supports our mission and who can bring their skills, knowledge and experience to lead both Get Out More CIC and the board of directors in achieving the organisation’s vision, mission and strategic objectives whilst supporting and advising the Managing Director on the management of the organisation.
We run outdoor programmes, including forest schools, outdoor play and community engagement programmes, for people of all ages in West and North Yorkshire. We use local woodlands, parks and natural spaces to bring people together, be active and feel good, working towards our vision: communities and nature growing healthier together.
We believe passionately in the power of nature to bring people together and improve wellbeing, communities, employability and the environment. As a social enterprise, profits are reinvested in the community by extending further opportunities to those at risk of poor physical and mental health and supporting conservation projects in the woods in which we work, ensuring our services can benefit those who need it most and as a society we can all benefit from getting out more.
Full role details can be found in the attached role description.
