Embrace Child Victims of Crime (CVoC) is transitioning from small, niche charity to a service-led organisation supporting young victims of crime across the UK who have been victims of, or witnesses to, the most serious crimes.
The Board recently affirmed its mission:
“Working with children and young people who have been victims of life-changing crime to help them cope, recover and move on to achieve their full potential”.
To continue the development of its emotional support and commissioned services, Embrace CVoC would benefit from an increased diversity of its Board of Trustees.
Expressions of interest are invited from those with relevant skills and experience and who are keen to further the cause. A number of current Trustees are due to step down in June having completed their period of office.
Operating across the UK and working closely with a number of commercial partners and Police & Crime Commissioners, Embrace CVoC would particularly like to hear from inspiring leaders who can also offer professional expertise in the following areas:
- Responsible for, or working with, children, young people and families at senior policy or practical level
- Delivery and oversight of emotional support and counselling therapies at senior level
- Experienced in the range of professional services, e.g., human resources, financial management, asset management, IT and digital technology, media & marketing, advocacy and public affairs
- Fundraising, major bid preparation, commerce, asset management
- Influential networker and advocate for children and young people
These voluntary appointments are made for an initial two years. Trustees are expected to attend four meetings a year plus a strategy session and be available to the executive for advice and guidance as appropriate.
