In our next Social Care Director & Clinical Care Lead, Chailey Heritage Foundation is seeking an ambitious and visibly inspirational leader, capable of winning trust and respect to lead our residential and community services for children and young people. They will also be the clinical lead for the Foundation, working closely with our NHS partners. At the same time, this pivotal role plays an integral part in our community - Chailey Heritage is not just an office, but a home, a school and a community for our children, young people and their families and loved ones.

We believe every child and young person has potential and, with support, can learn, enjoy, and achieve meaningful lives. From our beautiful site in the Sussex countryside, we change the lives of children and young people. We provide education and care services and are one of the UK's leaders in the field. Most of the young people accessing our services have severe cerebral palsy and many have visual and/or other sensory impairments. All are wheelchair users and very few have verbal communication. Our expertise is in maximising independence and choice, developing effective communication and providing powered mobility opportunities. We encourage you to seek out the Virtual Tour on our website to get a sense of just how transformative our work is.
