The Who Cares? Trust is a voice and a champion for children in care and young care leavers. We believe that every child in care should receive the support, encouragement and opportunities they need to enjoy their life and to achieve.
We want to refresh and diversify our board with a number of new trustees and require a range of skills and experience to help us deliver on our mission.
We are looking for individuals who share our passion for improving the life-outcomes of young people who spend time in the care system and who can provide critical yet supportive scrutiny and challenge. We are open to individuals from all backgrounds but positively encourage applications from people who are care-experienced themselves or involved with the care system (for example as a foster-carer or working with young people in care) and from black and ethnic minority groups. We are also looking for people who bring particular expertise in charity finance, fundraising, commerce or grant-making as we always try to ensure that our board has a complementary and relevant skill mix (although if you do not have those areas of expertise this should not deter you from applying).
