Shepherds Bush Families Project & Children’s Centre – Trustee Opportunity

 

Shepherd's Bush Families Project

Shepherds Bush Families Project & Children’s Centre is now in its 30th year and supports Families who are homeless and those living under acute housing stress. We are looking to increase the number of trustees currently on our board. Are you energetic, committed and passionate about helping children, young people and their families improve their outcomes! Are you flexible and willing to think ‘out of the box’ if so we need you!

This is a voluntary role and we need someone with a variety of skills, knowledge and experience and a commitment to support the development of our important work with families and children and young people in the borough.

The Board of Trustees’ are the accountable body for Shepherds Bush Families Project & Children’s Centre.  The Board is currently made up of trustees who have an interest in the work of the organisation and specifically family homelessness.  Supported by the projects CEO, the Board meets 4-6 weekly to review strategy and performance, Trustees may also be meet in between to review progress on specific activities through formal and ad-hoc subcommittee meetings.

Trustees are pivotal in supporting the organisation at a strategic and governance level. Whilst this may seem like a daunting role it can in fact be very rewarding and offers Individuals the opportunity to learn more about the voluntary/charity sector, acquire skills and knowledge that may be used for their personal CV’s and allows individuals to share their own knowledge and expertise with others.

We welcome applications from a range of backgrounds and cultures.

This is a rewarding and important project. If you are interested in volunteering as member of the Board of Trustees and you would like further information, please contact us on 020 8749 2371 or email tinamayers@sbfp.org .
