Parents and Children charity seeks new trustee with legal expertise

Closing Date
2 December 2022
Time Commitment
Quarterly board meetings

We are at an exciting phase of growth and now looking to bring new trustees to join our PACT family.

PACT – Parents And Children Together – is an adoption charity and family support provider helping hundreds of families every year through outstanding adoption and adoption support services and community projects across London and the south east of England.

Established in 1911, PACT is now one of the UK’s leading charities in its field and is dedicated to the placement of children with secure and loving families, continued support through therapeutic services, supporting and empowering women facing multiple disadvantages and the recovery of children affected by domestic abuse.

If you are excited by our work, this fantastic opportunity could be for you.

Who we are looking for

We would love to hear from you if you can bring different experiences, knowledge and ideas to PACT and have a desire to develop your personal and/or professional skills in a team of experienced and dedicated Trustees, volunteers and staff.

We are actively working to ensure that equality and inclusion is embedded in everything that we do. It is central to our work with vulnerable children, women and families, and championed by our community. However, we know there is more we can do. We want to do all we can for our service users, and we want everyone at PACT to feel a sense of belonging.

To support this aim, we are working proactively to develop a Board that it is representative of our diverse service users (both current and prospective), volunteer community and our wider eco-system. We also know the value of having board members who champion inclusive values and bring a wide variety of perspectives to our organisation.

We welcome people of all ages, backgrounds, cultures and levels of experience to apply for this role.  In particular, we recognise that we are missing out on valuable contributions and perspectives from people from ethnic minority backgrounds, people of different faiths, disabled people and people from LGBTQ+ communities.

Please note that previous board/trustee experience is not essential and you will be supported with a full induction and training as part of this role.

We are particularly looking for individuals with three years professional experience in:

  • Fundraising and Income generation
  • Business strategy
  • Digital development
  • Legal
  • Criminal Justice (including the Violence Against Women and Girls agenda)
  • Adoption
  • Safeguarding
