Human Development Scotland (HDS) are looking for a new Chair. We are looking for someone who has a strong sympathy for our charitable aims, the skills required to lead a team of committed trustees, and the vision to lead the charity through the next phase of its development.
First registered in 2012, the core purpose of HDS is to relieve mental and emotional distress by increasing the availability of, and access to, high quality psychodynamic and psychoanalytic counselling and psychotherapy. We do this primarily by delivering post graduate courses in counselling and child psychotherapy and through the provision of therapeutic services. Other activities include the delivery of short Infant Mental Health courses. For more information visit hds.scot
