New Trustees

This is a wonderful opportunity to make a significant difference to the lives of lone refugee youth. It is a challenging but highly fulfilling role.

The Separated Child Foundation is poised for growth at an exciting stage of its development and we’re keen to recruit more Trustees to strengthen and broaden our skills and understanding.

We’re committed to creating a diverse Board of Trustees that truly reflects the multi-ethnic nature of our society, including the children and young people that we support. We particularly welcome applications from people who have the lived experience of a separated child or a refugee in another situation, or else have been working for organisations that support refugees, and from people in under-represented communities.

We invite you to apply for the position of Trustee, which is a place in a lively, committed and forward-looking team.

Some basic information:

  • Our Board currently has eight Trustees (including a Chair, a Deputy Chair and an Honorary Treasurer). We also have a Minuting Secretary. We are looking for four more Trustees. New Trustees can be formally appointed soon after the recruitment process is complete.
  • Meetings take place on Zoom in the early evening on a weekday.
  • The role of Trustee is not accompanied by any financial remuneration, although expenses (including for travel) may be claimed.
