Charlton Toy Library is a Registered Charity run by a voluntary Management Committee. We are seeking to hire new Trustees who can commit the time to help move the charity forward to its next growth stage.
Charlton Toy Library is a Registered Charity run by a voluntary Management Committee made up of current and former Toy Library members. We support the wellbeing, safety and development of children living in Greenwich providing families with a place to come and meet other parents, play with their children or get advice from our very experienced members of staff. We provide free access to toys, books and safety equipment to support children’s needs whilst encouraging to recycle games rather than putting pressure on parents to buy new ones.
Through BBC Children in Need we receive funding to run an Outreach service which supports children and disadvantaged families across the whole Royal Borough of Greenwich.
The impact of Coronavirus and increase of living cost is pushing the most vulnerable children in our country into a downward spiral of isolation. We are seeking to hire new Trustees who are passionate and motivated, who can commit the time to help drive the charity forward to its next growth stage and help increase its team.
You will be a great communicator and able to develop strong working relationships with the other Trustees, the employees and volunteers and the members of the Charity. This is an exciting opportunity to put your skills to use and to make a difference to the families in our community, whilst playing an important role in the future of Charlton Toy Library.
This position is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
Charlton Toy Library is an independent registered charity (No. 285099) and is an equal opportunities employer.

With your support we can make a difference with local families in crisis.
