Trustees: Cambridge Women’s Aid

Organisation: Cambridge Women’s Aid

Cambridge Women’s Aid has been supporting women and children affected by domestic abuse for over 40 years. They are currently searching for new trustees to join their board.


Effective governance is key to the success and sustainability of the organisation. As a trustee, you will be able to use your experience, energy and creativity to shape their approach and help them achieve their mission. There is no such thing as a ‘typical’ trustee, and you don’t necessarily need previous board experience; women are welcomed with a diverse range of backgrounds, skills and life experiences, who can commit and contribute to the success of their work.


At the moment, the Board of Trustees is particularly looking to build expertise in Legal, Finance, HR. However, they welcome applications from all women with a commitment to the work of the organisation, and are interested in hearing about full range of skills applicants can bring.


As a trustee, you will receive training to carry out your role, have opportunities to represent CWA in the community, and be part of a supportive and welcoming board. Being a trustee gives you the chance to gain experience in strategic planning, develop skills in new areas, and add significant value to a thriving charity.


Please note: The service is run by women for women and is therefore restricted to women applicants under the Equality Act 2010, Schedule 9, and Part 1. Section 7(2) e of the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 apply. The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. A DBS (Disclosure Barring Service) disclosure will be required for this role.
