Become a Trustee

Are you looking for a voluntary role that will suit your skills and expertise?  Could St. Francis' Children's Society benefit from your knowledge, experience and contacts?

If you are enthusiastic and committed to making a difference to the lives of children in care, you might consider joining our existing Council of Trustees.

The Council of Trustees are responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of the charity, developing the organisation's aims, objectives and goals in accordance with the governing document, legal and regulatory guidelines.

If you would like to find out more about becoming a Trustee, please send your CV and some information about yourself to, marked for the attention of the Chair of Trustees.  You will then be offered an informal phone call with the Chair or one of our other trustees to discuss your interest further.


The Society is first and foremost committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers working with children to share this commitment. We apply recruitment and selection procedures which seek to ensure that no employee or volunteer is appointed who may pose a risk to children or is otherwise unsuitable to work with them.
