Become a Grandparents Plus Trustee

Grandparents Plus is fortunate to have a dedicated and talented board of trustees.  But we now have a couple of vacancies that we are looking to fill.  Could this be the role for you?

In particular we are looking for people with corporate experience, fundraising experience and expertise or those who have worked in a local authority.

Previous board or committee experience is desirable but not essential. We also particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates, from kinship carers and from those brought up in kinship care.

The successful candidates must be available to attend four board meetings and one or two strategy awayday discussions per year.  There may be a greater time commitment if a Trustee becomes one of the officers of the charity.  This is a voluntary role but travel expenses and childcare costs will be paid.

To find out more about this opportunity you can download a trustee information pack and read our latest annual report and accounts here. To apply please forward your CV with a covering email to with the subject ref ‘Trustee recruitment’.

To discuss the role or to contact one of our Co-Chairs please contact our Chief Executive, Sam Smethers on 020 8981 8001.

Please note that this is a rolling programme of recruitment without a closing date.
