Join the board


CSASS is overseen by a dedicated team of voluntary board members, also called trustees. Trustees meet several times a year to scrutinise the work of the charity.  The board are responsible for strategic planning, considering policy, overseeing finances and managing risk. Trustees ask good questions and ensure CSASS stays focussed on improving the lives of survivors. 

To make effective decisions, our board needs a diversity of viewpoints. We are particularly seeking people of colour and the global majority. Trustees would welcome more young people, and members of the LGBTQ+ and disability communities. CSASS especially values lived experience on our board.

We are looking for people committed 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, counselling, 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 delivers the 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. 

If you are interested in finding out more, please contact us stating your interest in the trustee role. Or go ahead and download the application form here.

As a women-led organisation, the majority of our board, including the chair, treasurer and secretary, are always women.
