Job Description

Standing Together Against Domestic Abuse is committed to ending domestic abuse by transforming the way organisations and individuals think about, prevent and respond to it.  We do this through a ground breaking partnership approach that we pioneered in the UK, called the Coordinated Community Response (CCR).

We are seeking volunteer Trustees to join our experienced Board to oversee Standing Together’s governance, compliance and planning, and to enable the charity to continue to grow in line with our strategy so we can help more women and girls live free from abuse and violence.

Domestic abuse is a complex social problem that impacts people, communities and services across our society, spanning health, housing, social care, the Criminal Justice System (CJS) and beyond. Since the pandemic domestic abuse has worsened leading to increase in frontline support services. The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a much-needed light on the prevalence of domestic abuse and the need for more effective support and response. We believe that an effective CCR is the only way we can address these worrying trends in alleviating domestic abuse.

To support this important work, we wish to recruit candidates with specialist skills in the following sectors: 

• Campaigning

• Fundraising, individual giving or philanthropy 

• Legal

• Marketing

We encourage applications from all backgrounds, including black and minority ethnic candidates, younger people, and people with disabilities as these groups are under represented on our Board. We are also keen to hear from candidates with lived experience of VAWG services. 

Trustees are required to attend 4 Board meetings and 1 away day each year. 

• Closing date for applications: 17:00pm on Monday,15th March 2021

• Date of interviews: week commencing 19th April 2021
