Make a difference – become a Trustee!

Parenting NI is currently recruiting new Board members.  Trustees need to be committed to the ethos of Parenting NI.  The Board meetings take place approximately 4 times a year (including an Annual General Meeting). 

The role of a Board member includes contributing to Board discussions and decisions, and to bring independent judgement on issues of strategy, performance, key opportunities and accountability.

At present, we would particularly welcome interest from those with the following experience to join the Board:-

  • legal background; or
  • experience within the voluntary sector, working in an organisation which supports children, parents and/or families to join the Board.

If you have an interest in our work, we would like to hear from you. Induction, training and support will be provided.  Although the Trustee role is unpaid, we will reimburse reasonable expenses.

Please email sharon@parentingni.org to request an Expression of Interest form.  This form should be returned by 4pm on Monday 12th October 2020.

Those interested will be invited to initially meet with the Chair and Chief Executive.
