Medact is looking to find a new Chair for our Board of Trustees to help us build on our achievements and realise Medact’s vision.

Medact has recently appointed a new Executive Director, as well as 6 new trustees. The Chair will be in a unique position to support the Director in her own development, provide strategic support, and manage the Board of Trustees to ensure that Medact is effectively governed.
