Job Description

We're Stay Brave. We won't give up until all survivors have the help they need and the respect they deserve. 

It's our mission to erase the barriers survivors of rape, sexual assault and domestic abuse, can face when asking for help. We do this by campaigning for better services, crafting policy and working with decision makers to improve access for every survivor.

Are you in energetic leader that wants to make an impact on the lives of those affected by rape and abuse? We want to hear from you! 

We are seeking a Chair with experience in a senior strategic leadership role who can provide effective leadership to the Board ensuring that it fulfils its responsibilities and accountabilities for good governance of the Charity. A successful candidate will be able to create additional value for the Charity through soliciting additional resources in the areas of policy and influence, awareness-raising, press and media, and/or income generation.


We’re a young charity wanting to take a modern approach to abuse and exploitation prevention. Stay Brave focuses on campaigning and working with legislatures and services to develop better policies for all survivors to ensure that they have access to the services they need.

Our Chair ensures that Trustees fulfil their responsibilities and accountabilities for good governance, and optimises the relationship between Trustees, our creative and committed team of enthusiastic volunteers. They will support and work in partnership with our brilliant Chief Exec, Alexander Morgan, helping him achieve our mission of empowering survivors to fulfil their potential and secure the support they need, while working towards a greater understanding of the barriers survivors can face when asking for help.
