CSASS is overseen by a dedicated team of voluntary board members, also called trustees. Trustees meet around 6 times a year to scrutinise the work of the charity. The board are responsible for strategic planning, considering policy and practice, overseeing finances and any risks to the organisation. Trustees ask good questions and ensure CSASS stays focussed on our goal to improve the lives of survivors.
To make really effective decisions, our board needs a diversity of viewpoints, ages, cultures, identities and experience, including lived experience. We are looking for people able to commit to attending all board meetings and some work between meetings too. Trustees need to have an interest in our work and values, as well as bringing relevant experience and knowledge. Skills such as finance, new ideas, strategic thinking, campaigning or leadership are all valuable.
We can offer the opportunity to influence the future direction of CSASS. You will be ensuring CSASS is delivering the very best service possible to survivors, and making a real difference. Internal and external training and out-of-pocket expenses are provided. There are great opportunities to gain professional experience and a chance to join an inspiring and passionate team (and cake, we do like cake at a meeting too). If you are interested in finding out more, or for an application form, please contact us stating your interest in the trustee role.
As a women-led organisation, the majority of our board, including the chair, treasurer and secretary, are always women.
Supportline and LiveChat services are open, and we can be contacted as usual. We know this is an especially hard time for survivors. Please do get in touch if you need a chat.
Remote and phone support is available for current clients while our face to face work is paused, and we’ll be taking new referrals soon. Please follow our social media for self-care resources, news about services and opportunities to help. We’ll be back as soon as we can.
