What difference will you make?

By working with the current board to advise and oversee our business plan, the organisation can ensure its services are sustainable, and that the growing demand for support from those who have experienced sexual abuse is met. Police statistics are showing an increase of sexual offences recorded, and many survivors of abuse endure psychological trauma for years before seeking support. Each trustee plays a key role, working alongside the CEO, to ensure the organisation can continue to offer support to survivors, and can grow in a sustainable way so no one is left without help. Our HR trustee will also be essential to supporting the CEO to foster an empowering work environment that embraces intersectional feminist leadership and anti-racist principles.
