What we are looking for


COS are always ready to recruit the right person to join our board of trustees.

COS are a successful disabilities charity here to improve the quality of life and equality of access for Deaf people and people with a sensory loss. To improve their opportunities in all aspects of life. We do this by promoting a world where sensory loss does not limit, preclude or stigmatise people from achieving their full potential.

We do this through the provision of communication and access support for adults, children and young people. It’s all about getting and understanding information in which ever form that comes. From film to health appointments COS is all about ensuring access is there.

  • Opportunities to make strategic decisions and develop new skills
  • Opportunities to network with senior professionals
  • Influence to shape innovative projects
  • The chance to improve health and wellbeing of people and communities
