Do you have financial analysis, governance and team skills to join Parents & Children Together as Treasurer to our Board of Trustees? PACT is one of the UK’s leading independent adoption charities, helping 100s of families every year.
Parents and Children Together has been building and strengthening families since 1911.
PACT is an adoption charity & family support provider (rated Outstanding by Ofsted) which helps hundreds of families every year through outstanding adoption services and award-winning therapeutic support, and inspirational community projects across London and the south of England. We are one of the UK’s leading independent adoption agencies. Our mission is to provide adoption and community services to vulnerable children, women and families.
PACT also runs community projects supporting vulnerable children and adults facing a range of issues including domestic abuse, homelessness and debt. Our current community projects include the Alana House women’s community programme, Bounce Back 4 Kids and the Recovery Toolkit programme. Our vision is to help even more families in these ways and to design and provide quality services where there is currently unmet need.
Back in 1911, PACT was the idea of the then-Bishop of Oxford and was established as the social welfare arm of the Anglican Diocese of Oxford. PACT is now an independent adoption charity with strong partnerships with many different sectors and faith organisations, statutory bodies, corporate organisations and charities, promoting an inclusive and supportive culture.
About the role
Our Board of Trustees voluntarily govern the charity’s activities. We are looking for a new Trustee to join our Board to take on the role of Treasurer.
Day-to-day responsibility for financial operations and control is in the hands of the Head of Finance. The Treasurer works with fellow Trustees and our Executive Team to develop financial strategies to support our ambitious plans, provide oversight of the charity’s finances & financial operations, to provide reassurance to the Board on the charity’s short and long-term viability.
The Treasurer is also responsible for ensuring that the charity fulfils its duties and responsibilities for its proper financial governance and to give advice and guidance when needed to the Head of Finance, and to fellow Trustees if needed.
