What will you be doing?

We have three trustee vacancies as board members relocate. You will need to attend the annual AGM and quarterly, evening board meetings. These are held remotely at present but will be face to face once restrictions allow. We are based in Epsom have a sustainable financial base from which we are looking to diversify our services. We need trustees with skills and experience in the following: safeguarding - to be the board lead; understanding of policies and procedures; perinatal and infant mental health; primary age children and school readiness. 

As a board we know our staff and volunteers value trustees who are engaged and take an interest in their work.
