Archived New Trustees/Directors vacancies

We are recruiting Trustees/Directors

Parenting 2000 is a charity established in 1994 by a group of parents.

Based in Sefton we run a range of services that provide emotional and practical support, information and guidance targeted at vulnerable children, young people and families in our borough.  We also run Youth Services under our Alchemy brand from our buildings in Southport and Crosby.

We are seeking to recruit a number of people to strengthen our Board of Trustees/Directors. We would particularly welcome people with the following skills:

Treasurer: The role of Treasurer is to help oversee the financial work of our Charity, not to be involved in the day to day running of the Finances. This would suit someone who has the senior experience of Financial Controls – ie an Accountant or similar. Preferably we would like someone with an understanding of Charity finance, but this is not essential.

Business: We would benefit from having someone with entrepreneurial skills as we look to develop our income streams.

Education: Someone with a background in Education, from Primary through to FE who would assist us to develop our support services to families.

Public Health: We are keen to develop our work around Public Health – we have previously led work with Parents/Carers and Young People around Sexual Health and Drug Awareness and would wish to enhance this area of work.

Environment: We are committed to tackling Climate Change and are developing a range of initiatives with our young people to inspire their peers and to promote best practice in the community.

Role of Board Members: The Board of Trustees is responsible for setting the strategy and policies of Parenting 2000 and guides and supports the Chief Executive and her staff, which involves meeting every two months currently on Zoom.

This is a voluntary positon. Out of pocket expanses will be reimbursed,

If you are interested in joining our board please send a CV and covering letter addressed to The CEO

A discussion with the Chair of Parenting and the CEO will be required before appointment.

Parenting 2000 is a registered charity (no.1042989) and company limited by guarantee (no. 2997217).
Registered Office: The Lodge, Mornington Road, Southport, PR9 0TS
