Join our Board

Our ideal Trustee is someone who has knowledge and experience of working with children and families whether in the third/private or public sector. Skills would encompass one or more of the following:

  • Social work
  • Education/Community
  • Strategic Planning
 

As the needs of our families evolve so does the work of the charity. Funding also evolves as national and local government strategies and priorities are updated. Our sustainability depends on us being able to remain in step and design projects that meet the needs of our users and sponsors. This is critical area of input for the Trustee we seek.

The board meets regularly, currently every 8 weeks. We foresee most meetings being virtual in future, however we would expect to meet face to face at least twice per annum. In addition, most of our Trustees have regular direct contact with the Chief Executive and other staff to provide support and mentoring.
