ThriveWorking together in Trafford

Genie Networks Seeking New Board Members

Genie Networks is a Charity based in Greater Manchester which has been supporting deaf and hard of hearing adults, children and families for over 5 years. The charity has been funded initially with a legacy from a resident of Trafford, then subsequently via the local council, national and local charities and fund raising. We rely significantly on our growing numbers of volunteers. Due to an ever increasing demand, we have expanded to cover other areas in the Greater Manchester conurbation. As a result we wish to strengthen our Executive Committee (the ‘Board’) to help us through this expansion over the coming months and years. We are looking for new Board members who will contribute to the governance and decision making of our organisation. We would welcome specific skills like marketing and finance but the most important qualities are an ability to work in a team and be motivated by a desire to support others. These positions are not remunerated and we do not pay expenses. If you would like to discuss these opportunities contact either John Platt ( who is Chairman of the Executive Committee or Claire Johnson who is our Chief Executive and can be contacted via any of the methods listed on our website
