We are looking to recruit 2-4 new trustees on to our brilliant Board.  Our Trustees are critical to the functioning of AoCPP.  They provide a range and depth of child protection practice and research experience, as well as enthusiasm and commitment to our aims.  Trustees come from a range of backgrounds, but share a desire to be involved in the development of the charity and see it thrive in what are challenging times.

The Board meets 4 times a year (two face to face meetings, and 2 via videoconference) and is responsible for the strategic direction of AoCPP as well as ensuring it is appropriately and legally managed.  If you would like to find out more about being a trustee, please see the details on our website, or email Wendy Thorogood at [email protected] for an informal discussion. 

As well as a strong background in child protection practice or research, and a commitment to multidisciplinary working and linking practice and research in line with our values, we are also in particular looking for people with the following skills/experience/perspectives:

  • Police
  • Education (0-18)
  • Budgeting and financial management
  • Fundraising/income generation
  • Charity governance

To be eligible for consideration you must be a member of AoCPP and able to demonstrate commitment to our aims and values, not disqualified from serving as a trustee, and have demonstrable child protection experience.  A trustee term is usually for 3 years.

If this is you then please ensure you have read the role description below, before sending a nomination email to [email protected] expressing your interest.  Your nomination will need to be seconded by another AoCPP member unrelated to you.  Please ask your seconder to email [email protected] directly.
