Purpose of Role:

Our Forefathers is an actice organisation providing practical and emotional support for parents and children folllowing a family breakdown. You are invited to join the team to improve and develop our services.

Role Description:

Your skills and experience will help us to improve and develop our services to meet the needs of people here in Nottingham. These services include:
* Contact sessions for families
* Play activities
* Social events
* Information events

As a trustee, you do not have to be involved in the day-to-day operation of Our Forefathers, but you will be involved in planning and development. You would, of course be very welcome to become part of the front-line projects as well.

Our trustees have independent control over, and legal responsibility for, our management and administration. Offering your time, skills and knowledge will help us with the smooth running of Our Forefathers. This opportunity would offer the potential to learn and grow whilst enjoying rewarding work.

You would attend our trustee meetings as well as carrying out some planning and other discussions with other trustees, staff members and volunteers.

This role is home-based for the time being, but we look forward to the time when we can meet in person again.

Skills and Qualifications:

We are not looking for specialist skills for this role. An interest in supporting families and vulnerable people during a very stressful time is the most important quality. If you also bring skills in counselling, events, work with chhildren and families, that would be great.

We recognise that there are many other areas of expertise that contribute to the growth and development of a successful voluntary organisation and whatever skills and experience you bring will be very valuable to Our Forefathers and the people we support.
