Chorus Homes Non-executive board members

Board Members

We maintain a register of people who would like to be considered as future Board Members.

Board Members fulfil a vital role in Chorus Homes. The role is "non-executive", which broadly speaking means you don't manage or direct day to day activities. The role of a Board member is to help us stay on track to achieve our Mission by being a "critical friend", reviewing the organisation's performance, looking at strategy and policy, being aware of the bigger picture, considering how our decisions and actions are fit for purpose, minimise risk, enhance our reputation and brand, encourage others to follow our example, meet the requirements of law and regulation and a few more...

We provide training, support and a great deal of encouragement to enable our Board members to be the very best!
