Chairman of Rutland First, Miles Williamson-Noble, said: "The young people of Rutland have from the start taken the lead in defining what help they and the schools need.

"But in addition to this, the project needs a strong and multi-skilled board to take care of the business side of the project, and is now looking for three additional board members."

The team are looking for support and expertise in the areas of mental health, school pastoral care, finance, public relations and governance.

They meet once every few months and carry out other business by email in between meetings.

The role is voluntary but expenses are paid.
