Why Developing Healthy Communities is supporting Boardroom Apprentice

The aims and objectives of the Boardroom Apprentice scheme align with the purpose and vision of Developing Healthy Communities; to increase opportunities for all. As an organisation, we are keen to benefit from a diverse range of skills and experience. 

This is our fourth year participating in the scheme and our Board members are very supportive. Boardroom Apprentices have added great value to our Board discussions and the work of the organisation. Two previous Boardroom Apprentices are now full members of our Board and contribute greatly to the work of our organisation.
