Project MAMA is a registered charity based in Bristol that offers free, confidential and individual-focused holistic support to women throughout pregnancy, labour and childbirth, and those first few weeks of parenthood. We currently support women refugees, asylum-seekers, survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking and other displaced women.
Project MAMA is seeking to recruit Trustees with a commitment to women's rights, gender equality and justice. As the board looks to develop into a more structured entity, we hope to recruit members who can support both board development as well as with charity governance.
Trustees are expected to attend one meeting a month, that lasts around 1-2hours, currently held via zoom. This is subject to change when the pandemic restrictions are lifted. We additionally request 1-2 day’s commitment per month for Trustee duties.
We are recruiting for several new Trustee positions, including a Treasurer role.
The Treasurer’s role is to liaise with the CEO and Financial Administrator to advise and guide the Board on their financial planning and strategy. The Treasurer is the leading interface between Trustees and management on financial matters.
Other board roles
Some of the desirable experiences and skill sets are listed below. We do not expect applicants to have all of these. In your application, please indicate what expertise you feel you can bring to the board.
If you feel like you have other skills that can benefit the charity, please tell us about these.
We are especially interested in receiving applications from refugees and others who have had direct experience of the UK's asylum system. We are also interested in applications from people from a diverse range of ethnic and cultural backgrounds who might bring different perspectives on experiences and challenges to life in the UK.
