They will have an up-to-date understanding and knowledge of current policy relating to models of care that the voluntary sector is part of and has so much to offer. They will also be familiar with the regulatory framework within which the Voluntary sector generally and One Walsall as a Charity itself needs to operate within. There will also be a specific requirement to provide vision and direction for the organisation as the sector navigates its journey out of the pandemic, building on the current momentum of volunteer and community responses.
