Become A Trustee

Do you have what it takes to be a voluntary trustee for Haven Network?

The Haven Network is a charity based in Waltham Forest which provides counselling and support groups to victims/survivors of sexual abuse or domestic violence.

If you are a member of the local community who is interested in getting involved in the not-for-profit sector, particularly if you have a background in business, we are keen to hear from you.

Playing a role in the governance and running of the charity, we are always looking for new members to join our board of trustees.

Previous experience in a trustee capacity is not necessary as we believe that everyone brings something new and valuable to the board.

As a voluntary trustee, you will work closely with a passionate team of people.

You will have the chance to support and shape the work that we do, knowing that your contribution will make a significant difference to an incredibly worthwhile cause.

Some of the duties of a voluntary trustee are:

  • To attend quarterly meetings.
  • To strategically oversee the management and administration of Haven.
  • To challenge and encourage the organisation in its endeavours.
  • To safeguard the good name and values of the organisation.

  • To ensure the effective and efficient administration of the organisation.
  • To ensure the financial stability of the organisation.
