Apply to become an Action for Children Trustee


Action for Children supports the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people across the UK and has being doing so for 150 years. Last year, we reached 387,000 children, young people and their families through 475 local services, in schools and online.  But we can do more.

We are a vibrant and successful organisation, working within a challenging financial environment, especially now more so than ever before.

We are now looking to recruit new Trustees who share our vision, mission and values and have the ability to contribute to our strategic leadership and governance gained in a complex organisation. Taking account of the range of skills and experience of our current Board members, we are seeking exceptional individuals, with a diverse set of backgrounds who share our ambition, for our needs as follows:

  • A Trustee with a background in change management;
  • A Trustee with a background in digital transformation;
  • A Trustee with a background in fundraising.

If your skills and experience are a match to one of these specialisms, we would be delighted to hear from you.

We are working hard to ensure we grow our active, diverse and committed Board, to enable us as a charity to achieve our aims and ambitions for vulnerable children. 

Applications close 22nd August 2020.
