Our vision at SBRCC is an end to violence, in all its forms, against women and girls. Access to early high-quality support when survivors need it can be life-changing. We believe that women’s rights should be protected and their voices heard.
This is reflected in everything we do at SBRCC. By working together with, and listening to, adult and young survivors, communities and by influencing public policy and opinion, we are helping to transform the lives of survivors of sexual violence recovering from the sexual trauma they have suffered.
Our Board is committed to our vision and values and members bring a wide range of skills, knowledge, expertise, objectivity, insight and strategic thought to the table. They involve themselves in our work and steer our organisation forward. We are looking for Trustees who can help us expand the range of skills around the table. We are particularly looking for expertise in the areas of marketing, communications, social media, finance/accounting, HR or legal knowledge, community and corporate fundraising, community engagement and experience of working in the voluntary sector.
We are also keen to hear from applicants with strong business links. We welcome applicants from women across Scotland. At the moment meetings are via Zoom, prior to the pandemic meetings were held in Galashiels however, ongoing virtual attendance is possible.
The positions are voluntary; however reasonable travel expenses are met. The Board currently meets four times a year, optional development meetings are also scheduled four times a year.
Only women need apply under Schedule 9, Part 1 of the Equality Act 2010.
