Can you spare a couple of hours a month to help change lives? The role of the Trustee. You may bring a particular expertise to the board, such as professional skills in finance, IT, business, personnel management or marketing and PR, but equally as important are listening and communication skills, commitment and common sense.

We need both men and women who have parenting experience to join our team of dedicated volunteers and befriend a family that needs just that little extra support.
