Key is a not-for-profit organisation which provides individualised support to around 2000 people in 16 local authority areas across Scotland. We employ around 2000 staff, the majority of whom work in roles which are directly related to supporting individuals. Key is also a Registered Social Landlord with 823 tenants, of whom 712 are supported tenants, and 713 owned properties.
Key’s Board is at the heart of everything we do and benefits from the wide range of experiences of its members who include family members, professionals, and people we support. Following the retirement of two long standing Trustees we are looking to recruit new people to our Board.
We are committed to working inclusively, within a rights-based approach, and we want to do even more to ensure our organisation is reflective of, and accessible to, Scotland’s population today. This is also a watershed moment for Scotland’s social care future, with plans for the development of a National Care Service and we are keen to have a diverse range of experiences guiding us to provide the very best support we can in this new landscape.
As such we are particularly keen to hear from people who identify as being a member of Scotland’s growing ethnically diverse communities.
