Les Amis Seeks Trustees

Jun 09, 2022

A retired chartered accountant who has recently been appointed as a Trustee at Les Amis is urging people with an interest in helping others to consider joining the team.

Chris Moulder retired last year as senior partner at RSM, which provides audit, tax and consulting services. He has joined the charity that supports people with learning disabilities, replacing Mark Jones who served as a Trustee for nearly a decade.

Les Amis is looking for more people to join the Board of Directors and Trustees as it continues to provide essential services and proceeds with its development of the Maison des Amis care facility in Val Plaisant. Thanks to a significant donation, the charity bought the former Hampshire Hotel and is converting it into the first facility of its kind to offer a higher level of residential nursing care to people with Down’s Syndrome and other learning disabilities who have nursing or special care needs, including those with early on-set dementia.

Chris is hoping his 40 years of experience will be useful in helping to meet the challenges of funding major projects.

Chris Moulder said: “I had been aware for a number of years of the splendid work carried out by Les Amis and therefore was delighted to be asked to get involved. I hope that my previous experience working in an advisory capacity with those in the property and not-for-profit sectors will bring direct benefit in supplementing the significant expertise of the existing trustees, particularly as the Maison des Amis project moves forward. There are also significant challenges in making sure that there is a proper level of funding to meet the needs of people with learning disabilities. I hope my contribution helps to achieve the goal of ensuring long-term care needs of islanders are met. It’s an exciting time to be working with this fantastic organisation that supports a community of absolute heroes.”

Shaun Findlay, Managing Director of Les Amis, added: “All of the people who serve on our Board of Directors and Trustees have considerable experience working across the various business sectors and organisations in Jersey, but we are always looking to add to that team. I would like to express my thanks to Mark Jones, a dedicated colleague whose wide range of skills were a great benefit to our organisation for several years. Without people like Mark, we would not be able to deliver the services that many people in the island need.”
