St. Francis’ Children’s Society is well-renowned for finding families for vulnerable children through its Adoption Connections service. But many people forget that we are also a registered children’s charity – and we are currently seeking new trustees.
Everything we do is aimed at creating the brightest futures for children and families, and this takes considerable investment. We rely on charitable support to deliver our services.
Recruiting adopters requires time and resources. Assessing and preparing a family for adoption takes many hours of social work time, then there’s the support services we provide for adoptive families, and ‘being there’ for that child and family over the years ahead.
There are many ways in which people can support our work – hosting a fundraising event, taking part in a sponsored challenge, collecting donations, or volunteering at one of our adopter training workshops. However, one of the most rewarding ways to support our charitable aims is to become a trustee of SFCS.
SFCS is currently looking for people to join their existing Council of Trustees who are enthusiastic and committed to making a difference to the lives of children in care. We are especially keen to talk to those with skills and experience in Marketing and Finance.
Are you looking for a voluntary role that will suit your skills and expertise? Could SFCS benefit from your knowledge, experience and contacts? You will find more detailed information about what this role involves on our Become a Trustee page.
If you would like to find out more about becoming a Trustee, please send your CV and some information about yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org, marked for the attention of Alison Miller, CEO.
