Trustees & Chair
Part Time
Contract Type

We are SafeLives, a national charity dedicated to ending domestic abuse. We are here for one simple reason: to make sure all families are safe. Our experts combine data, research and insight from services and survivors to find out what really works to make people safe.    
In our first decade we transformed the UK’s approach to domestic abuse. And we want to achieve even more as we enter our second decade. That means finding every family where there is domestic abuse far earlier so we can get them the right help, supporting the whole family holistically, and challenging perpetrators to change their behaviour and be held to account.    

You will be joining us at a hugely exciting time as our new strategy is underway. Your guidance and insight will help us lead and influence the future direction of the national response to domestic abuse, recognising how different forms of vulnerability are inextricably linked.   
We are looking for a Chair with exceptional governance skills and strategic ability as well as being financially literate, who is able to bring this experience to our high functioning Board. You will be as committed as we are about ending domestic abuse and ideally have experience within this field, with a strong understanding of diversity too.    
You will be comfortable in an ambassadorial role, able to build and develop relationships at the highest levels and offer sound strategic support to the Chief Executive. You will currently be in a senior position or have recently held a significant role with strong professional networks.
