Staf, (the Scottish Throughcare and Aftercare Forum) is the only national membership organisation in Scotland working with care experienced young people and the professionals who support them, with the vision of creating a country where the wellbeing and success of young people leaving care is indistinguishable from that of their peers in the general population.
Our current Board of Directors has a wealth of experience and knowledge of the sector, and bring passion and commitment to supporting Staf in making our vision a reality. As part of succession planning, with pending end of tenure for some Board Members, our Leadership team are now looking to bring additional skillset and experience to the Board, specifically in the following areas:

· Experience as practitioners and Senior Managers from within relevant sectors including Throughcare and Aftercare, Housing, Justice System, Employment, Education and Health
In particular we want to continue to have the experience and voice of care leavers on our Board. If you have skills and experience in any of the above areas and you want to help Staf to continue influencing policy and practice, create platforms for care leavers and practitioners to have their voices heard, and offer opportunities for networking, collaboration and sharing good practice – then please let us know.
