Survive is a dynamic and innovative agency established in 1974 providing high quality services to women, men and children affected by domestic violence and abuse in South Gloucestershire and Bristol. We offer a range of services for women and children who are experiencing or have experienced domestic abuse and increasingly work to provide preventative services within schools.  We want you to join us working towards freedom from domestic abuse.

We are currently looking to recruit a trustee (voluntary position)

In what are increasingly challenging times for the voluntary sector, we are seeking to extend our Board of Trustees to support the running and continuing development of Survive. We would welcome applications from those who share our aims and have a range of skills and experience. The Board aims to have a diverse make up and welcomes applications from all communities and backgrounds.

We seek an organised, enthusiastic person to join our Board of Trustees. We provide training and travel expenses and the opportunity to join a friendly, skilled and committed team and to learn new skills.

We are particularly looking for volunteers with expertise in one or more of, but not limited to, the following areas:

– Governance and compliance with the legal and financial requirements of the Charity Commission

– Income generation including fund raising

– Marketing & communications

– HR and management

– Service delivery in health, housing and social care

– Experience of working with those that have experienced domestic abuse

You would need to be able to attend Trustee meetings every other month during the evening for a minimum period of one year.

Closing date for applications:  Monday 24th April 2017 at 5pm

 Survive is committed to equality of opportunity in all aspects of our work.

Please email info@survivedv.org.uk to request an application pack and to submit your completed application form.

All positions are subject to an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Check and satisfactory references.

Could you host your own event and help raise vital funds for Survive, as well as awareness of domestic abuse?

You could hold a cake sale, have a dress down day at work or school maybe? Get sponsored to give something up? Hold a wine tasting evening perhaps?

You could host your event at home, at work, at school or in the community!

To request a fundraising pack please email Survive on info@survivedv.org.uk or call us on 0117 961 3065.
