The Frontline Network needs YOU!

We are looking for 3 frontline workers to join our Steering Group.

The Frontline Network exists to harness the ideas, energy and experience of those at the frontline working with homeless and vulnerably housed people. We do this by building relationships, sharing best practice, developing solutions and communicating the experience and views of the frontline.

We are looking to increase the number of frontline workers on our Steering Group (to 8 frontline workers) so we are now recruiting new members for our Steering Group.

The main aim of the Steering Group is to drive the strategic direction of the Frontline Network and to oversee its activities. This means Steering Group members will be:

• Shaping the strategic direction, and future, of Frontline Network
• Overseeing and reviewing the current activities of the Frontline Network
• Evaluating Ideas submitted through the Ideas Board and deciding which Ideas will be funded
• Contributing content to the Frontline Network website – news and views, ideas, events, resources, and Forum, and 
• Shaping the Frontline Network Annual Conference

Steering Group meetings are held quarterly in Central London and the next meeting (which you need to be able to attend) is on Thursday 5 October.

The full Steering Group Terms of Reference are below so you can get more of a feel for who we are and what we do.

To apply to join the Steering Group please complete this short application form and return it to Raks.Patel@stmartinscharity.org.uk

The deadline for completed applications is midnight on Tuesday 5 September 2017.
