SafeLives is a national charity dedicated to ending domestic abuse, for good. We combine insight from services, survivors and statistics to support people to become safe, well and rebuild their lives. Since 2005, SafeLives has worked with organisations across the country to transform the response to domestic abuse, with over 60,000 victims at highest risk of murder or serious harm now receiving co-ordinated support annually.
No one should live in fear. It is not acceptable, not inevitable, and together – we can make it stop.
Trustees x 2
You will be joining us at a hugely exciting time as our new strategy is underway. Your guidance and insight will help us lead and influence the future direction of the national response to domestic abuse, recognising how different forms of vulnerability are inextricably linked.
We are looking for two additional Trustees who are as committed as we are about ending domestic abuse and wider safeguarding issues to join a strong board with a highly entrepreneurial mindset.
Senior professional and strategic leadership experience in safeguarding - within a charity, Family Courts, healthcare environment or local government. This individual will have child safeguarding experience and ideally also adult safeguarding.
We are seeking to broaden the geographic breadth of the board with a Scottish based Trustee. This individual may (but not necessarily) have professional experience of working within domestic abuse, family safeguarding or a related field within the charity sector in Scotland.
