Join our friendly and hardworking team of Trustees.
The Elizabeth Fry Charity provides support to women, mostly on licence from prison, who have a range of complex needs. Through our work, we help women to begin to address the issues they face, to improve their lives and reduce the likelihood of further offending.
The Elizabeth Fry Charity provides a 24 bed Approved Premises, enabling women in the criminal justice system to access accommodation, support and monitoring.
Elizabeth Fry is one of only six Approved Premises for women in England and Wales and the only in the South. We are located in Reading, but provide placements to women from across England and Wales.
Trustees, both individually and acting together as the Board, use their skills, knowledge, expertise and contacts to govern the Charity, safeguard its assets and apply them as efficiently and effectively as possible to further its charitable objectives.
We are interested in hearing from anyone who is passionate about the work we do and feels they can contribute to the success of the Charity.
The Board of Trustees meet every two months (usually on a Tuesday evening). There are four committees (Finance, Personnel & Safeguarding, Fundraising & Marketing and Buildings, Health & Safety) which Trustees can join and which meet four to six times per year. Trustees also undertake a number of announced and unannounced visits to the Approved Premises during the year.
