Summary of Role

About Accelerate

Accelerate is an ambitious social enterprise and its people are driven by our mission to improve the lives of people with leg ulcers and lymphoedema. These conditions are costly to people’s lives and the health economy. Accelerate aims to change this and ensure people of all ages can access successful treatment and the support they need to manage these conditions. We started as a ‘spin out’ from the NHS in 2011 with 6 clinicians and 1 administrator based in Tower Hamlets. Meeting this important mission has meant that we have grown to around 40 members with services across London and a national education programme.

We are setting our growth strategy for the next 3-5 years and are seeking to recruit three new Non-Executive Directors to help and oversee Accelerate’s transition from a small to a medium sized social enterprise, with a focus on a franchise based approach with a national and international presence in these specialities.
