Could you be a trustee for ACTS FAST?

Updated: Jan 24

We are looking to expand the diversity of our trustee board and are looking for new members who can support the growth and development of this important work.

Currently we are looking for trustees who can support and help develop our unique and dynamic work. We would particularly welcome people who have the following experiences:

· Strategic Leadership

· Human Resources

· Business Acumen

· Finance/Accounting

· Legal (family, criminal, employment and charity law specifically)

· Social Work

· Client Facing or Counselling Experience

· Safeguarding

· Marketing/P.R

· Fundraising

· Lived Experience of trauma relating to domestic or sexual abuse

A trustee’s role is to provide strategic management and governance of the organisation. Individuals actively bring their unique talents into the board and come together to make decisions collectively for ACTS FAST’s betterment and development.

The board meets formally 4 times a year (quarterly), and there is an expected commitment of roughly 2 hours a week to maintain your active role as a board member. Trustee training is mandatory and is provided and funded by ACTS FAST. All trustees will undergo an Enhanced DBS-checked before acceptance on the board.

ACTS FAST is a Dorset based charity, established in 2014, that supports non-abusive parents, carers and adult family members of children who have been subjected to child sexual abuse (CSA) or sexual assault and adult family members and partners of individuals who have accessed Indecent Images of Children (IIOC). Often referred to as secondary victims of CSA. Delivering services nationally our aim is to lessen the impact of CSA on children, families and the wider community by providing therapeutic support to adult family members that allows them to build a stable foundation that supports recovery for the whole family. We are one of the only five charities in the country who provide this unique support.
