Charity registered in Scotland SC011534
We are a social housing provider and social enterprise which promotes and provides affordable housing and services across Central Scotland.
We believe that all members of society are equal and that everyone has something to contribute. We are committed to supporting the development of diverse communities which include disabled people.
We work to provide homes and housing related services which offer the opportunity for people to be independent and have choice and control in their lives.
Do you fancy helping people who are Invisible to be seen and heard - if so, read on!
Our existing Board of Management are not known for being shy and retiring, consequently we are looking for people who can think out the box, challenge orthodox thinking and have a questioning mind with a good sense of humour!
At Horizon we are committed and passionate about people being able to live full and independent lives in a home and inclusive environment that meets their needs. As a result, we provide accessible, affordable houses and services owning and managing 860 properties across 12 Scottish local authorities.
A partner in Link Group, our voluntary Board always works in the best interests of our tenants and everyone who uses our services, championing the need for accessible services and independent living to support people who have a range of different needs. Quite simply – we need many more homes suitably designed for ALL needs and we want those who are equally passionate to join us.
You’ll have a chance to learn new skills and interact with people from different experiences, attend conferences and events and get support with equipment and technology if you need it. Board positions are voluntary, but we pay out of pocket expenses and childcare costs fully and quickly.
Committed to diversity we would really welcome people from all ages and backgrounds, particularly disabled people, younger people and people from the black and minority ethnic community. If you also have skills in finance, legal, business, health and social care, and media and marketing, so much the better, you would be very welcome.
