Chance UK provides solution focused mentoring and family support for children aged 5-12 with behavioural and emotional difficulties alongside group workshops designed to build social and emotional skills and resilience. The children we work with have often faced trauma and challenge in their lives but we know that with the right support they can flourish. We have been on a period of significant growth and development for the organisation which means we have more than doubled the number of children we work with, developed new ways to provide support for children and have worked in more Local Authority areas than before.
Chance UK are looking for committed new Trustees who share our values to join the Board during this time of development and change. Individuals are sought who have a strong empathy with our mission of early intervention for children and their families. Experience, skills, and expertise in Safeguarding, Fundraising and Communications are particularly sought at this time.
Chance UK is committed to being an actively anti-racist organisation and particularly welcome applications from those from Black, Asian, and other minority ethnic backgrounds. We are also seeking to broaden the diversity of the Board in other ways and welcome applications from LGBTQ+ candidates, candidates with disabilities and also those with lived experience of the issues we work on, including: exclusion from school, being a parent of a child who has been excluded or who has additional social, emotional or behavioural needs. We believe that a diverse board leads to better results.
We are open to applications from those who do not have any formal governance experience and Our Chair, Hugh Thornbery, welcomes informal conversations ahead of a formal application.
