What will you be doing?

As our Lead Trustee for Safeguarding, you will play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of the young women we support. At Flourish, we provide therapeutically-matched one to one mentoring and bespoke workshop programmes for the young women of Brighton and Hove; this is a brilliant opportunity to contribute your expertise in safeguarding practices and support our charity's mission.

What are we looking for?

Ability to commit up to three hours a week to the Lead Trustee for Safeguarding role - largely virtual, with occasional in-person activities. Experience in safeguarding, child protection, or related fields. Strong understanding of safeguarding principles, policies and procedures. Knowledge of relevant legislation and regulations governing charity safeguarding practices. Excellent interpersonal and communication skills. Dedication to the wellbeing of young women. Commitment to LGBTQIA+ inclusion. Ability to work collaboratively with diverse stakeholders, building trust and rapport. Alignment to Flourish's values of co-creation, playfulness, inclusivity, kindness and empowerment.

What difference will you make?

At Flourish Mentors, we're dedicated to making sure no young woman is invisible. We are a small but growing charity, registered in December 2021, and we offer free wellbeing support to young women - aged 16-25 - in Brighton and Hove, East Sussex. We are proudly LGBTQIA+ inclusive, and aim to help any young woman who comes to us, tackling their problems whether big or small.   We provide individualised one to one mentoring and fun experiential workshops, giving our mentees sustainable and life-enhancing skills. To date we've delivered workshops to around 400 young women, and we're currently supporting just over 60 mentoring partnerships. All our interventions aim to help young women increase their confidence and self-awareness, decrease their anxiety, and focus on fulfilling their dreams.
