We want to hear from you if you are passionate about helping us create a better future for those whose lives have been affected by domestic abuse.

Do you have the energy, ideas and skills to help shape and sustain this crucial work?

  • Moray Women’s Aid (MWA) is the leading specialist organisation working with women and children affected by domestic abuse in Moray.
  • Moray Women’s Aid works to empower those whose lives have been affected by gender-based / intimate partner violence and abuse, providing a range of services across the region.
  • Our Board of Directors combine a mix of skills, talents and personal interests and come from all walks of life. We are looking for people to join us and bring their passion, experience, and skills to our existing Board. Although not essential, we welcome applications from those who have experience – or an understanding of - domestic abuse. A director role with us is the best contribution you can give to help us tackle domestic abuse in Moray.
  • Our Board members are passionate and dedicated to our role
  • We will provide a comprehensive induction programme and mentoring support to new Directors, both to develop your skills as well as to build up a detailed knowledge of our work.
  • The expected time commitment is between 4-6 hours a month. We have monthly Board meetings which usually last about 11/2- 2 hours and we hold one Director/Staff vision day per year. Directors will also need time to read committee and board papers in order to participate in meetings. Our meetings can be accessed either through zoom or ‘in person’. Out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.
