Edinburgh Women’s Aid strives for a society free from domestic abuse by providing practical and emotional support and information to women and children. The charity also raises awareness of domestic abuse and its prevalence across society.

The Board of Directors is responsible for the effective governance and strategic direction of Edinburgh Women’s Aid. We are looking for new board members with diverse skills and backgrounds that complement the existing board skillset. Candidates who have experience of financial management are of particular interest, however previous board experience is not essential. We are equally keen to hear from candidates who are seeking their first board position and we would particularly welcome applicants who have used any women’s aid or other specialist women’s domestic abuse services in the past.
