Join our friendly and hardworking team of Trustees

Trustee / Committee volunteers needed for Elizabeth Fry Charity in RG30

The Elizabeth Fry Charity provides support to women, mostly on licence from prison, who have a range of complex needs. Through our work, we help women to begin to address the issues they face, to improve their lives and reduce the likelihood of further offending.

The Elizabeth Fry Charity provides a 24 bed Approved Premises. Approved Premises are premises approved under section 13 of the Offender Management Act 2007. They provide accommodation, support and monitoring to women and men in the criminal justice system who are assessed as posing a medium to a very high risk of serious harm to others

Trustees, both individually and acting together as the Board, use their skills, knowledge, expertise and contacts to govern the Charity, safeguard its assets and apply them as efficiently and effectively as possible to further its charitable objectives.

We are interested in hearing from anyone who is passionate about the work we do and feels they can contribute to the success of the Charity.

The Board of Trustees meet every two months (usually on a Tuesday evening). There are four committees (Finance, Personnel & Safeguarding, Fundraising & Marketing and Buildings, Health & Safety) which Trustees can join and which meet four to six times per year. Trustees also undertake a number of announced and unannounced visits to the Approved Premises during the year.
